TEDxJohannesburg - Karen Michelle Brooks - 11/15/09

Writing the Future As a nation, and world, of storytellers we have come full circle. Wisdom first came from the elders as we sat at their knees, then as families dispersed into the global village of the industrial age, only a few chosen stories, deemed important, were published for the global family to read-hear. Now that we have entered the digital age, with blogs, cellphones and self-publishing, we can all tell our stories again. Karen tells her story about getting her fantasy novel for children published, in a country that hardly ever publishes fantasy books.
