On The Page

On The Page is a series of writing and poetry submitted to the Centre for Stories as part of the 2019 Centre for Stories Inclusion Matters Hot Desk Fellowship.

In this collection of work you will find honest explorations of culture and identity, of purpose and home. These stories share wisdom and heartbreak, scrutinise relationships between religious upbringings and queer identities, and traverse themes of race, violence, climate change, anxiety, and language.

So grab a cuppa, get into a comfortable chair, and prepare for the ride of a lifetime.


Thank you to our contributors:  Adele Aria, Alexander Te Pohe, Emily Sun, Kaya Ortiz, Kim Lateef, Prema Arasu, Patrick Gunasekera, Priya Kahlon, Raihanaty A Jalil, Raphael Farmer, Rushil D’cruz, Tinashe Jakwa.
