Q&A with Storymix Senior Editor Ashley Thorpe

October 9 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Storymix creates original and high-concept series for children and teenagers with inclusive casts of characters. It was founded in 2019 by entrepreneur, editor, screenwriter and author Jasmine Richards, who is passionate about creating heroes for every child and creating stories where every child gets to be the hero. Storymix offers a springboard to racially-minoritized creators, and incubates talent by working collaboratively to produce fiction for children and teenagers to be sold directly to publishers.

Ashley Thorpe’s role involves developing storylines and characters, writer outreach, and editing on Storymix projects. He’s worked across children’s fiction, and academic and educational publishing over a 15-year career. Ashley is also a fiction writer, shortlisted for Penguin Random House’s Write Now programme in 2017. His debut middle grade novel is expected in 2024. His favourite children’s book is currently Nic Blake and the Remarkables: The Manifestor Prophecy by Angie Thomas.
