The Telling Room

About The Telling Room

The Telling Room is a nonprofit writing center in Portland, Maine, dedicated to the idea that children and young adults are natural storytellers. Focused on young writers ages 6 to 18, we seek to build confidence, strengthen literacy skills, and provide real audiences for our students. We believe that the power of creative expression can change our communities and prepare our youth for future success.


Teaching Intern

June 2018 - August 2018 Portland, ME
“I was truly grateful to have the opportunity to have a hands-on teaching experience right after my first year at Colby. I truly enjoyed helping the lead teachers develop their curriculum for the students, and I truly appreciated the positive experience I had with the students. I was inspired by the passion that the youths in Maine had about writing and the stories they were willing to share with their peers. This internship was a great assurance for me to continue my interest in the field of education!”
