About the Inclusion Matter Project

Funded by the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries, Copyright Agency, and the Cente for Stories Founders Circle, Inclusion Matters (2019-2020) was developed from the highly successful African Writers Mentoring Program (2017) and Indian Ocean Mentoring Program (2018). These programs resulted in the publication of Ways of Being Here (Margaret River Press, 2018) and Wave after Wave (Centre for Stories, 2019).
