The Power of Storytelling.
A conversation with poet and author Maxine Clarke. Through a fascinating path and series of events, Maxine has spent years crafting (and honing) stories for adults and children alike to help them find windows and mirrors to their identity, and hope and confidence within the wider world.
Maxine's work has made its way to syllabus and as plays, with ambition to go much bigger.
