My Story

Sydney Story Factory is an incredible and unique writing centre which targets young people from disadvantaged, Indigenous, and non-English speaking backgrounds. This makes a huge difference by empowering young people who need it the most in terms of literacy and education, but is also something which means a lot to me personally.

I'd always been passionate about writing, all throughout primary and high school, but without more experienced people as support, I often didn't know how to move forward. An organisation like this would have made a huge difference to me at the time. And whilst I often felt restricted and lacked confidence in the way writing was taught in high school, I've seen through my volunteer sessions at SSF emphasises creativity and enjoyment.

My goal for the Pen to Paper challenge is to finish the short story I'll be reading at National Young Writers' Festival and the nonfiction piece I'm submitting to Voiceworks.

This September writers of all varieties are committing to putting their pens to paper to keep the creativity pumping at the Sydney Story Factory. They're challenging themselves to sit down and WRITE and asking friends and family to sponsor them.
Want to sign up someone UNDER 16? Please click on "Continue Reading" to see important info.
We've already blitzed our original target! Amazing! So we're going higher, with a big bold stretch (gulp) to $30,000. Will you help us get there? $30,000 will guarantee no fewer than 600 places in one of SSF's signature book making or robot bird poetry workshops for marginalised children. Thanks for your support!
Are you registering a young writer under 16? Call the page your child's name. Then all other details, including date of birth, need to be your own to create a fundraising page on Everyday Hero (you have to be over 16 to be able to fundraise). If you have any problems at all email debbie@sydneystoryfactory.org.au. Thanks again!
