James Knight

 G'day. Welcome to a site that embraces stories in all their shapes, sizes and forms. Stories connect us. They help us make sense of our communities, our world, and our lives. This site provides information for the many services I offer through my own independent company and as a contractor. Services include:

  • Education (Story Connect)

  • Writing

  • Media Production

  • Media Training

  • Keynote & Guest Speaking

I've been incredibly lucky to have worked in many far-flung places across the world. Time and again my experiences remind me that the people so often make the place;  this defines my work ethos. I feel privileged to meet people, listen to them, learn from them, and be trusted by them to help tell their stories. 

​​Smiles from afar,

James (Knighty)

Busy and Diverse

It has been a busy first six months of 2021.  Here are some of the highlights:​​

  • I was one of a number of authors involved in a series of writing workshops with Year 10 students at Cherrybrook Technology High School, Sydney. The project, organised by Westwords, led to the online publication of Three Weeks In November in June 2021. Well done to all participating students.

  •  Again through Westwords, and the Mount Druitt Ethnic Communities Agency (MECA) I was privileged to meet and interview a group of refugees for Refugee Week. From these, a series of postcards and podcasts were released.

  • Presentations and workshops in primary and secondary schools both in the city and the bush. Thank you to all staff and students who made the experiences so special

  • In collaboration with my Indian colleague, Tania Kamath, from the Watering Can Foundation, we are up to the lay-out stage of our self-funded NFP book that includes short writings from secondary school children from India, Australia, Cambodia, Sweden, USA, Ghana, Uganda, Burkina Faso, New Zealand, Argentina, Sweden and Denmark. If all goes well, the book will be published in July/August. Each participant will be given their own copy and be acknowledged as a published author.



  • Work continues on a website that will specifically for youth all over the world. It will be a place to share stories, learn from each other and celebrate the power of stories. It is due to be launched towards the end of the year.
