The Write Creed

06-10-2021 • 45 mins


Prerna Shah is a Dublin-based writer, blogger and journalist. In July 2020, right in the middle of the Covid19 pandemic, she and her friend Swati Subhedar started The Good Story Project which is a storytelling platform that allows ordinary people to write about their lives. "A safe space where interviews, personal narratives and features could be conducted with balance and empathy." In this episode of The Write Creed, Prerna and Eisha talk about the need and scope of slow journalism and then meander through topics of mental health, loss, adoption, grief and guilt, while weaving their own stories into the conversation.
