Sydney Story Factory - Catherine Keenan

My sister Cath is doing some fabulous work.  She has set up and runs a not-for-profit creative writing centre for children in Redfern, Sydney.  Donations small and large are very welcome as are volunteers.  Please take a look and spread the word far and wide.

The Sydney Story Factory is a place for children to develop their love of words. Volunteer tutors offer free help with any creative writing project a child can imagine. The centre is behind The Martian Embassy and Gift Shop, where everyday rules fall away and the imagination has no bounds.

In June 2013 the ABC news featured a short segment on The Sydney Story Factory which is now in full swing.  Congratulations Cath on an amazing job!  So many kids are thrilled with your work.
