We Know Who We Are
We Know Who We Are is a collection of writing from students at Yule Brook College, located in the south east metropolitan region of Perth, Western Australia. Led by author and writer-in-residence, Rashida Murphy, this project provided students a chance to share stories that matter to them. We Know Who We Are brings intergenerational and multi-voiced communities together through storytelling.
The stories and poems you read in this anthology are as individual as the writers themselves. These are their ideas and thoughts, shaped by culture, embedded in unique experiences, and indicative of the multi-lingual families they inhabit. Travel with them to worlds that are yet to be discovered as well as familiar landscapes, marvel at the power of language to wield both discomfort and sweetness, and rejoice in the imaginations that birthed these stories.
