- Writing is an integral part of A Griot’s Spin. There are two forms of AGS Writing: Nana Spirals and Young Gems.
- A spiral is a curve or pattern that can represent concentration and focus. A griot spins stories, starting at a central point then winding out and around, making a beautiful web of ideas and events. Nana Spirals are stories that promote positive images and values.
- When a spider spins its web, the morning dew drops resemble radiant jewels hanging on a delicate string. Like the jewels of a spider’s web, Young Gems are radiant stories written to exemplify the magnificent wonders of God.
