Welcome to Sydney Story Factory.

We're a not-for-profit that runs creative writing and storytelling workshops for marginalised young people aged 7 to 17. Supported by our community of expert storytellers and volunteer tutors, young people are empowered to create stories of all kinds, which we publish and celebrate. Young people develop the skills and confidence to find their voice and shape the future.
