WestWords grants are to support writers with a strong connection to greater Western Sydney to develop their writing projects for young people. I spent the first eighteen years of my life living in greater Western Sydney and I am looking forward to working with kids in the region and getting them co-creating the World and Story of this digital project.

My first draft of Earth dates back to 2007 and it has evolved more rapidly in recent years through many late night creative conversations with Story Scrapbook app developer Ben Train.
Earth will be previewed at the Speakers Ink school librarians conference Write of Passage at the State Library of QLD on 3 May and at Writers Fests later in the year.
The project will be officially launched with an invitation to collaborate in June. I hope you'll join us.
Big thanks to Judith Ridge and Jodie Polutele at WestWords, the judging panel and the fine folks at CAL for funding creative experimentation and dreams.
