Are you an aspiring or emerging writer from a culturally or linguistically diverse background?
Participate in a 4-week creative writing program designed to empower diverse writers to craft engaging stories on three themes: Family, Futures and Connections. The program will provide you with training and the opportunity to showcase your work and collaborate with professional artists, producers and academics.
“The best art is political and you ought to be able to make it unquestionably political and irrevocably beautiful at the same time.”
The Citizen Writes Project aims to demonstrate how creative writing and the power of words can influence and inspire, and to create opportunities for inclusion and representation of culturally diverse stories in our society. The program celebrates voices that are rarely heard in the mainstream media to encourage cross-fertilisation
By developing under-represented writers, we are creating opportunities for them not just to develop themselves and their craft as writer/artist, but creating opportunities for inclusion and representation of culturally diverse stories in our society.
