The Centre for Stories is thrilled to announce that we will be sending five writers from our Inclusion Matters Hot Desk Fellowship to the 2019 Digital Writers Festival.
"Facilitating exposes me to the creative juices of other people, and that informs and inspires my own writing. I see the whole mutable and organic mix as a community in which we’re all learning, rather than me being some kind of expert imparting knowledge. We all always have something to learn."
"That’s something I’ve learnt from doing my story collection as well; that everyone has a story, multiple even, and these are stories that we can all learn and grow from."
"Telling stories is how I make sense of the world. When I look back, I can almost see myself trying to work through a sense of panic, or a sense of not understanding, or an old hurt."
"Listening to other women’s stories really helped me to see my identity isn’t as straightforward as I thought it was. I’m a lot clearer about what I need to understand."
The Centre for Stories is thrilled to announce the successful applicants of the Inclusion Matters Hot Desk Fellowship (Round Two) for 2019. 
Our Interviews series gives us an opportunity to focus on the work that individuals do. It highlights the writing, storytelling, and poetic craft of people. As Between the Lines comes to a close, the Centre for Stories is excited to launch two new series: Bincang Buku and Five Minutes With.
"The arts isn’t a commodity, it is an experience. It’s essential to remember this if wanting to engage with new audiences."
"I think being able to tell a story is a very beautiful thing."
"I’ve seen emerging writers nurtured by the belief of other people. I’ve continued to learn that people are gloriously different. I’ve experienced pleasure, frustration, surprise, pride, and the therapeutic effects of laughter."
