Myths and Legends to end a legendary year!

It has been an extraordinary year, so we ended this year's storytelling with stories that remind us that nothing is ever really new in the world.

Neil Gaiman has an extraordinary ability to write fantastical tales firmly rooted in the everyday.

Touch by Josephine Newman – an emerging writer working with Centre for Stories
