    Have something you want to write? Or have you been working on something but not sure where to next? It could be prose, poetry, spoken word, fiction or non-fiction.

    We’re offering emerging local First Nations writers a masterclass in micro and short fiction. This will be a structured, well-rounded masterclass that offers networking opportunities along with practical writing skills and skills to present in front of live audiences.

    Yarn Bombing is a successful component of the Blak & Bright First Nations Literary Festival. Storytellers pop-up at the start of public sessions and present their 3-minute spoken word piece of any genre: short fiction, non-fiction, poetry, reportage etc. The stories capture the exceptional talents and capabilities of community members who would not normally be programmed into a literary festival. Yarn Bombers from previous Blak & Bright festivals are now forging their way in the literary world.

    Interested storytellers will have the opportunity to Yarn Bomb the Write Around the Murray Festival in September and deliver a 3-minute spoken word piece of any genre.
