Making Of SDNT

As Stories Dad Never Told evolves from concept to obscure website to (hopefully) a movement, the “Making of SDNT” is where visitors can read the personal blog of editor and curator Steve Jarriel. 

As Jarriel undertakes this complex, consuming project, “Making of SDNT” will include diary entries, resources, lessons learned and other valuable information that will help others start, gather, publish and share stories about their own fathers.
