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. Then the author writes a story, which is read on the podcast.
Sandhya Nankani (top) created the podcast. She wants to highlight kids’ creativity. “When kids get to a certain age, there isn’t much space to imagine and create,” she told TFK. “I wanted to make a space . . . where collaboration and imagination can be centered.”
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.”
