What We’re All About

 

The Story Seeds™ Podcast celebrates and empowers kids’ creativity. On each episode, we will match children and their story ideas with the imaginations of diverse and celebrated storytellers who grow these “seeds” into original short stories! Alongside the podcast, our studio Literary Safari is developing a subscription box, interactive creative platform, and curriculum that will foster children's imaginations!
