We’re proud and deeply humbled to announce a new collection of stories, standing in solidarity with the international 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-based Violence campaign: 16 Days – 16 Stories.
The Centre for Stories is pleased to announce Lintaus Laut. A new project funded by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and the Australia Indonesia Institute. 
"My time volunteering at a whole range of places has, in a way, been for me to test waters in different fields of work—and along with it, I’ve worked with many wonderful humans."
"I remember in my childhood I had a very creative imagination and I'd make up dramatic stories in my head that I'd play out in our backyard. I also loved reading...all genres—horror (R.L. Stine), mystery (Nancy Drew), and series like Babysitters Club."
"I am standing here in front of you speaking, not as an expert, but as a Zimbabwean-born African-Australian writer who has more than a few things to say."
We're thrilled to share our first solo publication, Wave after Wave — a collection of poetry and short stories developed by ten emerging writers of Indian Ocean heritage.
For me, storytelling is the ability to share small, significant moments in a way that makes them intimate and immediate to whoever hears them.
We are thrilled to announce that Saga Sisterhood will be jetting off to Melbourne in December 2019, where three storytellers will perform at Mapping Melbourne.
"Having migrated to Australia at a young age, I was able to get a better understanding of who my parents were, where I’m from, and learn more about my culture through story telling. It has revealed another aspect of my identity to me, that I may have otherwise been unaware of."

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.
