Over a 10 week period, 25 young emerging writers from Western Sydney participated in an intensive program of workshops and mentoring, led by Winnie Dunn and Shirley Le from Sweatshop Literacy Movement.

In 2021 the cohort will continue to undertake their commissions and will undergo further training with editor Camha Pham.
