Looking for creative ways to get your students
writing and sharing stories?

NESA Logo.png

Story Factory has been running fun and engaging creative  writing  workshops for primary and high school students right across the state since 2012. Our staff - all qualified, experienced teachers with a passion for writing - are experts at getting young people excited to write. It doesn’t matter if your students have low literacy levels, or are often disengaged: we have tried and tested strategies you can use to get them writing like never before.

Our workshops are designed and delivered by teachers for teachers.

In our NESA-registered Teacher Professional Learning workshops, we share the proven strategies we’ve developed through our work. Our workshops will help you develop engaging units of work and classroom activities for students across the full range of ages and abilities.
