15 November marks Courage Day in New Zealand, recognising writers who defend the right to free speech and those who suffer oppression and imprisonment because of their writing. This event is observed internationally as the Day of the Imprisoned Writer. Liz and Chris discuss this day, the author James Courage after whom it is named and the resonances for this in our community and school. As previous podcasts, such as our Korero with Taki, Hadley and Tawhiri and our recent conversation with Abhishek, indicate, the instinct to write fearlessly is alive and well in our students.
