We’re back with Season 3 of our EPisodes Podcast.

EPisode 18: Empowerment through creative expression – How poetry and creative writing can cure us all.

Here Jimmy chats with Richard Short, Storyteller-in-Chief from The Story Factory. What a joy it is to listen to two delightfully passionate literacy advocates. Richard is an experienced secondary school teacher and in 2014, completed a Master of Creative Writing. His first book of poetry (written under the pseudonym Rico Craig), Bone Ink, won the 2017 Anne Elder Poetry Award (of the Australian National Literacy Awards), and was shortlisted for the 2018 Kenneth Slessor Prize. Together they discuss the impact of stories, developing grit in students, and how allowing students to express their stories is vital and valuable.
