Talking Writing: Stories of Sydney

SWEATSHOP is the Western Sydney Literacy Movement, a group devoted to empowering Western Sydney communities through literacy and critical thinking. It mentors, supports and employs Western Sydney artists to work with communities and create literature and art specific to their experiences and identities.

On Thursday 16 October, SWEATSHOP will be bringing their unique brand of storytelling to the NSW Writers’ Centre for an evening of readings and discussion from their book Stories of Sydney, a collaboration with Seizure journal. Featuring Michael Mohammed Ahmad (The Tribe), Luke Carman (An Elegant Young Man), Maryam Azam, and Amanda Yeo, this event will be an opportunity to get up close and personal with some of Sydney’s best new writers.

This event is free for members of the NSW Writers’ Centre. RSVP to events@nswwc.org.au. Tickets for non-members are $10 and can be purchased here.
