Things are a little different this week. On this special quarantine episode of our podcast, Story Seeds creator, Sandhya Nankani, sits in for our regular host Betsy Bird to facilitate a virtual field trip between creative rockstar Amalia (age 12) and New York Times best-selling author, Tracey Baptiste. Listen along to their video chat collaboration as Tracey helps Amalia grow a story seed about an athletic girl named Joy and her magical relationship with the oak tree in her backyard. Then, sit back for story-time as Tracey reads aloud “Joy’s Challenge,” the original story she wrote, inspired by their conversation.
Like most people who have had to shelter in place or socially distance this spring to stop the spread of COVID-19, Amalia and Tracey, though homebound, show us that creativity can continue to bloom, even while in quarantine—and that collaboration can be successful, whether it is in-person or virtually!
