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)

The Three R's of 2021: Rural, Regional, Remote

As the saying goes 'You can take the boy out of the bush, but you can't take the bush out of the boy. So, in 2021 I will be spending time helping people in rural locations. Programs include storytelling and literacy for parents. For more details please contact me.

Global NFP Book Project

In collaboration with my Indian colleague, Tania Kamath, from the Watering Can Foundation, we are self-funding and publishing a NFP book, in 2021, that includes short writings from secondary school children from across the world. If you or your school would like to know more, please contact us.

Storytelling site for World Youth

In 2021 I will be launching a website specifically for youth all over the world. It will be place to share stories, learn from each other and celebrate the power of stories. More details to come by the end of January.

2021 Sports and Culture Program

This is a new addition to the storytelling/education program. It offers elite athletes and those in junior development programs a chance to explore the world beyond their sporting bubbles. It includes discussions about sporting cultures, Australian culture, and there is also much emphasis  on developing greater understanding about the cultures of other countries.
