Inclusion Matters is a new fellowship and mentoring project at the Centre for Stories for emerging writers located in Western Australia.
"It’s really a lovely atmosphere. And also, of course, I’m doing different things like interviewing people and writing their stories which I would not be doing otherwise."
The Centre for Stories is excited to announce the release of 'Bright Lights No City' published by Margaret River Press.
I want other people, women in particular, to also feel the impact of creative expression and how it can enhance our every day lives.
"Storytelling is one of the most uniquely human traits, the way we connect to other people and make sense of our lives."
"I think stories broaden our worlds while bringing other people into our unique, personal interpretation of our lives or of the communities around us."
"Writing has always been a big part of my life ever since I was little, writing about princesses getting imprisoned by an evil dragon. Though I later moved on to writing stories that are closer to home."
"I retired from full time work two years ago. Theoretically I now have time to write!"
"Although writing has always been something I’ve loved, the fear of sharing these pieces of my soul and potentially being judged caused me to avoid the ‘formal study’ of writing throughout my life."
“There’s lots of really great people and I think we’re very, very fortunate to be living in this country and we’re very fortunate to be where we are at the moment.”
"I’ve only been writing short fiction for two years, so I hope the gains will be exponential."
"It was, and still is, a struggle to adjust to city life. I’m still very much used to the slow pace of small towns and knowing most people in the town. The noise in the city never stops."
