Another amazing resident of 107 Redfern St.

The Sydney Story Factory is a not-for-profit creative writing centre for young people  based in Redfern, Sydney. We believe that all Australian young people, no matter their background, should be given opportunities to develop the communication skills and flexibility of thinking that will allow them to live their lives to their full potential and flourish in a rapidly changing world.

Our priority is marginalised young people - those most at risk of losing confidence in their writing and switching off at school. We light the spark of creativity and help them find their voice.

Programs are for young people aged 7 to 17, in primary and high school, and are designed by creative writing and literacy experts to:

  • improve young people's written and oral communication skills;
  • enhance self-confidence and self-efficacy;
  • nurture creativity and empathy; and
  • deepen engagement with learning.
