Early Harvest

In its eight year, Early Harvest is a dynamic publishing program that brings together an editorial board of upper-primary students, and provides them with mentoring and workshops to publish an issue of the annual collection of fiction and poetry, Early Harvest.

Missing a dream or two? You might just find them hiding between the pages of Early Harvest 7. Fourteen young editors, 12 young writers and Australian Children’s Laureate Morris Gleitzman saved the world from a dreampocalypse and swept the lost dreams into Early Harvest 7!

Story Hubs

Modelled on our very tall (or very deep?) 100 Story Building, Story Hubs are imaginative spaces for young writers to pen, draw, read, tell, share, craft and design stories in a comfortable, inspiring place they call their own. Over the next three years, 100 Story Building will work alongside seven Story Hubs and their communities to deliver participatory creative programs that improve wellbeing outcomes for children and young people.
