Don't Just Give. Give Well. 

BECOME A SYDNEY STORY FACTORY INKWELL

The Sydney Story Factory Inkwells are a wonderful group of people who are deeply committed to changing the lives of marginalised young people, one story at a time. Will you join them?

Sydney Story Factory Inkwells keep the creativity pumping and ideas flowing. With a gift of $30 a month – less than a dollar a day – you too can sponsor a child's place so that every month one more marginalised young person can attend one of our innovative creative writing workshops. Your gift will ensure they receive the one-on-one attention that could transform their writing skills and send them back out into the world with a whole new self-confidence.

Your support will ensure that another young person like Jennayah will be able to attend one of our creative writing workshops every month. Meet Jennayah and read her latest story HERE.

Sponsoring a child’s place at the Story Factory is simple, easy and efficient. You nominate the amount you would like to give and this will be debited from your credit card on the same day every month. All donations of $2 and over are 100% tax-deductible and we’ll automatically send you a donations summary in July each year, which you can use for your tax return.

We'll keep you informed about how your monthly gift is making a difference by sending you quarterly updates, including original writing by the freshly-minted young creatives you've inspired. From time to time we'll send you emails sharing the latest news, and inviting you to events. You can cancel at any time, simply by emailing us or sending a letter.

Becoming an Inkwell is one of the best ways you can support the Sydney Story Factory. 

"I'm not a creative person so to see the joy and confidence built in young people through the SSF's programs never ceases to leave me in joyful wonderment and awe. Become an Inkwell and see the world again through these beautiful kids' eyes." - Sarah Susak, Sydney Story Factory Inkwell and mum of the gorgeous Stella

The certainty of ongoing funds provided by regular giving means we can plan ahead. This improves the effectiveness of our creative writing programs, and allows us to help even more marginalised young people.

As a Sydney Story Factory Inkwell, you will help ensure the Sydney Story Factory can continue to provide innovative creative writing programs free for the young people most at risk of losing confidence in their writing abilities and switching off at school. Your generosity WILL change lives.

a unique thank you from marcia the martian librarian 

Do you know a child who would be brave enough to receive letters from Marcia the Martian Librarian?

As a special thank you, when you become a Sydney Story Factory Inkwell you will receive the Martian Mail for your favourite small Earthlings. We'll send you the Martian Mail every few months alongside our updates on how we've put your gifts to work.

The rather formidable and eternally grumpy Marcia does not believe for a minute that young Earthlings are creative. Just as she does when she drops in for workshops at the Martian Embassy (our home base, in Redfern), and in her own inimitable way, Marcia will share suggestions for creative writing activities for you to try at home. We're confident they'll be a hit with Earthlings 7 to 12, never mind what Marcia says.

Don't have young Earthlings to receive Marcia's missives? If you don't want to receive the Martian Mail just let us know.

If there is anything more you want to know about being a Sydney Story Factory Inkwell, or the Martian Mail, just drop a note to Amber. Email her on: amber@sydneystoryfactory.org.au.
