The end of the (publishing) world?

Involving audiences and children particularly in helping to create the story is  a great idea and looks like a lot of fun, but I do hope it’s an ‘add-on’ and not a replacement for the printed book and the author-generated story.

Have a read of this Guardian article and see what you think…

  1. I think there will always be storytellers and readers, listeners and/or viewers, and maybe occasionally they will swop places, or enter collaborative ventures of one kind or another. But whatever form the conventional book (or even movie, say) may take in the future I don’t believe storytelling will ever die. And that’s what matters. It’s part of human nature.
