Throughout 2017 and 2018, we'll be taking up residence in eight primary schools across Western Sydney. As part of each residency we'll run two creative writing workshops per day at each school as part of a term-long program in which students will be supported to develop and extended piece of creative writing, culminating in publication.
So far this year, we've visited the awesome kids at Ruse Public and St Patrick's Guildford in Term 1, and Briar Road Public and Merrylands East Public in Term 2. This term we'll be working with kids at Ambarvale Public and Woodland Road Public to write a collaborative, fictional biography of the oldest living person, and an Australian Odyssey of epic proportions.
Check out our Sydney Story Factory Parramatta Director getting right into the dress up spirit at Briar Road Public! You're a wizard Nick!
This program has been made possible thanks to the Crown Resorts & Packer Family Foundations as part of their Western Sydney Arts Initiative.
