In April 2017, the radio station Network fm 91,5 in Chania and the show for children, “Go up apple, katea pomegranate”, by Valentina Papadimitraki started the creative writing action “Write a story with a hero… Mortis! ».
Beyond all expectations was the response of the children who, testifying to their creativity, wrote imaginative stories with Mortis when to flirt with cats, when to pursue thugs, when to travel to unknown planets or to meet Justinian in the years of Byzantium. 150 children took part in the action and submitted a total of 45 stories, the result of either collective or individual creation. Dozens of parents and teachers collaborated with the show, so that the children’s stories, after being heard from “Go up apple, descend pomegranate” be included in this collective edition by the “Compass of the City” publications that embraced the project.
