In these books, published by LAPA / Penguin Publishers in September and November 2022, I share my experiences of the past seventeen years as a Narrative writing mentor to young people in marginalised communities in the Western Cape. Stories of how the young writers found their voice, together with their writing,  also feature in the books.
