We have helped 50+ children from TrenchTown become digitally published authors. When equipped with story writing skills and the latest digital illustration tools, what stories will they tell? We found out from March 22- April 8, and on June 2 we publish the GreaterCakes app chock of full stories by these great kids!
As part of its significant project for 2016, the St. Andrew Rotary Club supported the GreaterCakes workshop series through the donation of mobile tablets and a water tank to the TrenchTown Reading Center. Rotary will continue its infrastructure support by repairing the classroom roof and adding a new ceiling. We thank the Rotary Club for its tremendous support and look forward to growing with new partners into 2017, when we hope to stage a Kiddies' Festival of Digital Arts!

Illustration, Storytelling, Innovation, Mobile Apps
Dozens of book-loving boys and girls visit the Trench Town Reading Centre each day to bury themselves in stories - now they are learning how to create their own tales.
Thank you so much sharing our story LoopJamaica.com!
Their stories have been published in an app just like this!
The Greater Cakes project was designed by ListenMi Caribbean Ltd., a digital content production and distribution company, that produces the hit series ListenMi News and the interactive comic League of Maroons. Its team of illustrators, sound designers and writers led by CEO Kenia Mattis will be spearheading sessions such as inking with a tablet, character development and storyboarding.
