The Sydney Story Factory in Redfern runs free, term-long creative writing programs for young people. This video gives an insight into how the classes run, why we run them, and what the benefits are for students. It also includes some figures on how many students came through in our first year of operations, 2012/13. This was prepared for the Westpac Foundation, which generously supported the first year of the program. Many thanks to Toby Dixon for the gorgeous footage; Annie Le Cavalier of the Dusseldorp Skills Forum for putting it together; and to our students and volunteers for their starring roles.
