Kiwimbi brings TWC's Story Magic to Africa

As part of TWC's mission to build a community of writers, TWC recently donated a set of our Story Magic Inspiration Idea Decks to Kiwimbi, an organization that provides educational opportunties in Africa. Kiwimbi volunteers guided students in Amagoro, Kenya to do some creative writing using our decks. Not only did the students write their own stories, they memorized and recorded them! Here's just one example, a story called "A Weird Boy" written and recited by Faith. We are very proud to have had the chance to share our love for creative writing in such a faraway land.
