Have a great idea for a story? The Story Seeds Podcast pairs kids who have original ideas with professional authors. Together, they brainstorm and develop the idea. The author writes a story. Then it is read on the podcast.
Sandhya Nankani (top) created the The Story Seeds Podcast. She wants to explore kids’ creativity. As they get older, kids have fewer opportunities to be imaginative, she says. “I wanted to make a space . . . where collaboration and imagination can be centered,” she told TFK.
Betsy Bird hosts the podcast. She loves listening in on the teamwork between kids and authors. “This cross-generational collaboration is enticing,” Bird says. “Nothing helps you write better than actually interacting with kids.”
