The Sydney Story Factory Volunteers Wanted!

The Sydney Story Factory

is looking for

volunteer tutors to help kids write the most exciting stories of their lives!

At its home in Redfern, volunteer tutors
work with students one-on-one or in small groups to write stories of all kinds, which it
publishes in as many ways as possible

Please download the

Volunteer call out Flyer

 You can volunteer as much or as little as you like

– an hour a month, or two hours a week –

and training is provided


All classes are led by our
Storyteller-in-Chief, who designs the curriculum and supports you as you work with a
child. You’ll never be left alone to work these things out.

Take a look at some of the photos and videos

If you’re interested go to and click “get involved.”

Volunteers from Indigenous or non-English speaking backgrounds are particularly welcome.

176 Redfern Street, Redfern NSW 2016. Just look for the Martian Embassy.
Tel: 9699 6970 or email


So, all my author and teacher friends and colleagues, parents and grandparents, aunties and uncles, please do think about volunteering at the Sydney Story Factory.

I know that some of you already are, including Susanne Gervay who is running a workshop later this month.

So what’s it like to volunteer at the Sydney Story Factory?
