Ex-stream-ly Online: exploring Express Media’s Toolkits Program

The seemingly endless creative possibilities presented by new tools for digital storytelling can feel overwhelming – which is exactly why Express Media introduced Toolkits: Digital Storytelling.

Part of the pioneering online mentorship program they have been running for writers across the continent since 2016, mentees have been learning the ins and outs of telling stories online over 12 weeks in 2019.

Celebrating the potential of new storytelling platforms, and drawing attention to the value of bridging geographic barriers through digital space, Rory Green, Voiceworks Online Editor and alumni of Toolkits: Poetry presents a new work designed to encourage readers to reflect on the infrastructure that enables and maintains a program like Toolkits.
