Indian Ocean Mentoring Project

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

The conclusion of the Indian Ocean Mentoring Project 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 was launched in October 2019 and is the Centre for Stories’ first solo publication. Copies of Wave after Wave can be purchased here.
