The Secret Garden of Poetry

During October 2017 Sydney Story Factory will work with young people from Western Sydney to write poetry inspired by Wendy Whiteley's Secret Garden. They will explore the colours, shapes, sounds and scents of nature and feed this into their writing under the guidance of our storyteller-in-chief (and published poet) Richard Short.

They'll their polish and perfect their poems in time for in a poetry reading at the Brett Whiteley Studio on Sunday 5 November with a forum on the process of working in this manner and the young poets' experience of writing from nature.  

This very special program is being run in partnership with Poetry Sydney.
