EWS Ep #23: Storytelling for Children… and What We can Learn from Them
In today’s episode I’m chatting with a guest who has published 18 picture books and two novels. He is a highly accomplished and awarded author and illustrator from the Sunshine Coast in Queensland. He is Peter Carnavas.
Engage With Story often takes a more business or marketing focus when exploring storytelling so I’m excited to bring today’s interview to you as I speak with one of Australia’s best children’s authors and illustrators.
