Dear Reader,


Storytellers have dazzled me all my life. Some go by famous names, others, are known simply as Mum, Helen or Mr Johnson.


Telling stories is one of the most precious practices known to humanity. It helps us connect with the people we love and brings communities together – be it a tribe with thousands of years of ancestry or a party of three perched on a park bench.


I created Boabel to write and publish stories. I like all screens, cinema to mobile. And I still enjoy the smell of stories printed on paper.





Belinda Nowell is a writer, producer and the principal storyteller at Boabel.
