The Venturous Guild of Visionary Storysmiths

The Venturous Guild of Visionary Storysmiths (VGVS) is an international creative collective committed to growing a diverse, inclusive, and collaborative community of empowered artists. We are a nonprofit organization that provides free resources, workshops, mentorship, and safe spaces for creators to hone their skills, build their confidence, and share their stories. The Guild is open to teen and adult creators of any kind who work in any medium. Your passions may include writing & poetry, print & digital art, photography, film, music, fashion design, dance, theater & performing arts, graphic & game design, and more!

VGVS is a US-founded nonprofit charitable organization under IRS code 501(c)3.
All donations are tax-deductible. We are a verified Guidestar organization with our
Candid Silver Seal of Transparency. View our Guidestar profile here.


Anyone from anywhere who is at least 13 years old may join the Guild and/or participate in our Discord server.  While everyone has free access to virtual workshops and the resources, prompts, and share spaces in Discord, only those who pay annual dues are considered Guild Members and are able to attend board meetings, vote on Guild matters, participate in certain events, and receive certain benefits.  Guild membership dues are $15 per year for adults 18+ or $12 per year for teens aged 13-17. Subscribe to annual recurring payments by selecting an option below. You may cancel your membership subscription at any time. Thank you for investing in this amazing creative community!
