Skysinger Press specializes in books, programs, and other resources that help interpreters and interpretive writers create stories that inspire and engage the visitors who grace our heritage and historic sites, our natural areas and national parks, our museums and zoos and aquariums. Stories that enrich their experiences—and their lives. Stories that make a difference to our readers and, we dare say, to the world.
“The purpose of a storyteller is not to tell you how to think, but to give you questions to think upon.” – Brandon Sanderson, The Way of Kings
We began in a small corner of our sister company, Greenfire Creative, LLC. Greenfire Creative offers writing coaching, workshops, and retreats, along with freelance writing and editing, including interpretive writing. As Greenfire Creative’s coaching and workshops expanded, we realized the time had come for Skysinger Press to soar on its own.
“Stories have to be told or they die, and when they die, we can’t remember who we are or why we’re here.” – Sue Monk Kidd, The Secret Life of Bees
