Indian Ocean Mentoring Project

The Indian Ocean Mentoring Project is a mentoring program involving ten writers of Indian Ocean heritage. The stories engage with ideas of growth, dream, the ocean, movement, and language. The project is ongoing, and, has resulted in appearances at Perth Festival Writers Week. Funded by the Department of Local Government, Sport, and Cultural Industries.

The conclusion of the Indian Ocean Mentoring Project will resulted in the publication of Wave After Wave; a collaborative effort from all ten writers and mentors. Wave After Wave features short stories and poems that touch on themes of belonging, heritage, loss, identity, and home. It presents a number of new voices to offer a different perspective on our part of the world. Wave After Wave is due to be launched in late 2019.
