When we write creatively, we invent entire universes. Whether in a poem or a short story, writers need to know how to make their writing believable. In this workshop, we practice making writing that feels genuine, inspired, and exciting. Join This is Canon to make new work, and improve the writing you're already doing!

It's #AustralianReadingHour celebrating #StoriesthatMatter. For us at Story Factory, our students stories matter so it's the perfect chance to reread #thecoconutchildren by Vivian Pham, who wrote this captivating tale as part of our Year of the Novella writing program.  We want to know what you're reading and getting you feeling inspired too?
Why is literacy so important? Yes, literacy lets you experience your favourite books and different worlds and perspectives, and yes - literacy allows you participate in the workforce, and share your own perspective, and opens all kinds of doors - but ultimately what literacy does is empower.  Literacy empowers individuals and improves their lives. It expands and extends their capabilities to choose the life they want for themselves.  The pandemic has been a powerful reminder of the critical importance of literacy, and the absolute imperative that all young people everywhere are empowered through literacy.  This #internationalliteracyday we'll be doing our bit to make writing fun, accessible and empowering for young people in Western Sydney, so they can experience the life-changing magic of telling their own stories.  Maybe take a moment today the think about how literacy has shaped your own life too.  📷Jim A.Baker
