Sydney Story Factory opens its Martian Embassy

The Sydney Story Factory is about to open its new premises in Redfern. I’m one of the many volunteer tutors who help kids tell stories of all kinds and I’m looking forward to working in this wonderful new space. The SSF was founded by Cath Keenan and Tim Dick, drawing on inspiration from 826 Valencia, a writing centre in New York. The SSF will also include The Martian Embassy and Gift Shop, a one-stop store selling everything a child needs for space travel and inter-galactic exploration.

The Sydney Story Factory is asking readers to vote for their favourite book. Always a difficult choice, but this time for a worthwhile cause: A list of Sydney’s 50 favourite books will be compiled, wonderful works of art will be created, and these will be auctioned at cocktail event in November.
Inspired by 826 Valencia, the Sydney Story Factory is a not-for-profit creative writing centre for children. To see for yourself, follow this link to a video of the workshops.
