▬▬▬▬ What is Tale Foundry? ▬▬▬▬
Welcome to Tale Foundry! The only place on Youtube (or perhaps the internet, if we want to be bold here) where you not only get to hear a new short story every month, but you get a look at all the ideas and inspiration that goes into them!

Our real goal is to educate, inspire, and encourage you to share the stories in your head with the world. This is a place for storytellers, writers, and nerds who like to make stuff up.

Share your ideas with us; give us feedback on our stories; let us know what inspires you! Anything creative is welcome.

We look forward to seeing you around~
