Seeking Support to Nurture Young Storytellers


writers

Newcastle Writers Festival is seeking support for its unique Story Hunter program to foster the next generation of Australian writers.

 

The festival is calling on local businesses and individuals to 'adopt a class' and help Story Hunter reach more students, especially those in need.


The curriculum-aligned program is unique to the Hunter region and takes trained local authors into primary schools to deliver engaging, playbased writing workshops that develop creativity and literacy skills.


Tax-deductible donations help the festival to offset costs and offer these workshops for free to disadvantaged schools. The donations ensure that local writers can be paid a fair wage for their work and help give kids the opportunity to have their stories published in anthologies or displayed in the community.


By adopting a student, a class, or a whole school, supporters can help equip a new generation of Hunter writers with the skills and confidence to tell their stories. Visit www.givenow.com.au/ADOPTACLASS to donate today!
