Thank you Sydney Comedy Festival!

Huge thank you to Olivia from Sydney Comedy Festival for coming through the tempest on a wild and stormy Sunday to present this fantastic donation at The Martian Embassy.

Our Sunday morning students and volunteers, with Cath and Helen, were just chuffed to be able to receive the great big wonderful cheque on behalf of the Sydney Story Factory. We were delighted to be chosen as the Comedy Festival's charity partner for their Town Hall program this year.

Thank you again Olivia, we can't wait to do it all again next year!

Meanwhile, thank you too to everyone who got behind our Eat Your Words campaign in April and May.

Our goal was to raise $5,000 to help our Year of the Novella students see their publishing dreams realised, and we hit no less than $5,820. That's awesome! Our total budget is $20,000+ so every single dollar will be put to good use.

Thanks so much to all our hosts and their very generous guests. We think you're fab.
