Do we consider that we can all write? Good speakers rarely consider those skills can be transferred to the page, and therefore there is an element of mastery that is needed that goes way beyond the need to be the best. My guests in the studio are Lydia Hamilton and Mandy Newman, the wonders behind Literary Giants a project with a mission to improve the quality and standard of writing around the world. This show will be relevant for teachers, parents and students themselves. How willing are we to be the change we want to see in our expression and equipping our next generation to be critical thinkers?
