Taking part in this debate are Simon Heywood – storyteller, folklorist, and creative writing tutor, Shonaleigh – a dyslexic storyteller and author, Sara Brown – poet and author, and Deborah Stevenson – a poet and teacher at the University of Nottingham. The debate will be chaired by Brendan Stone – an academic at the University of Sheffield and leader of Storying Sheffield.
