The (Second) Year of the Novella

This year, with the wonderful support of Bankstown Youth Development Services (BYDS), we've set up residence at the Bankstown Arts Centre to, once again, work with a dedicated group of young novella-ists! The challenge to write, edit and publish a 20-30,000 word novella in just 12 short months, is not insignificant, and storytellers Richard and Bilal have been hugely impressed with the ideas and outlines developed thus far.

During Terms 3 and 4 we will support this group of inspired young writers to develop their writing from concept to page and complete their most substantial piece of original fiction ever, right through to professional publication.

This project follows on from the hugely successful Year of the Novella program we ran last year. You can read all about this journey - and the wonderful novellas launched in December 2016 - here

We can't wait to read this year's finished products!

This program is generously supported by the Aesop Foundation.
