Earthmender Fiction



Earthmender Fiction is part of the #OverDystopia movement. People want to imagine better futures in order to create better futures. We will be writing stories about mending our relationships with one another and with all living things on Earth.

As part of this process we will be creating a zine, so that you can see your writing in print.

This course will help you to understand Earthmender Fiction. Most importantly you will learn how to effectively create these sorts of stories for the media of your choice: novel, short story, graphic novel, electronic game, or film and television. Let's raise some awareness!

This activity is open to people 14 to 28 years. 

Please contact us to enquire on 9433 3744.
