Dylan Pritchett (pronounced DIE-lan), a native of Williamsburg, Virginia, has been a full-time storyteller since 1990. He has traveled the country entertaining kids and adults alike with his folktales. He sprinkles his tales with positive messages meant for people of all walks of life.

Dylan is the president of the National Association of Black Storytellers, and was a consultant and narrator of the PBS documentary, Thomas Jefferson: A View from the Mountaintop. He has also loaned his voice to museum recordings and exhibits for the Smithsonian Museum, Colonial Williamsburg, Monticello, Museum of the Confederacy, and many more. He is one of a handful of artists tapped to participate in the John F. Kennedy Center's Performing Arts Partners in Education touring program, leading storytelling workshops to instruct teachers on how to use storytelling in the classroom.

His five-week course teaching middle school students how to write creative stories about women and children, black and white, who lived during the Civil War has been a success across the country, making learning history fun and meaningful.
