Mission StatementTo provide opportunities for the most marginalised children and young people in our community to build the literacy skills, confidence and sense of belonging that are fundamental to future success.
Description100 Story Building is a centre for young writers that supports children and young people aged 6-18 years from marginalised backgrounds to develop their literacy, confidence and sense of belonging. We work directly with young people from diverse backgrounds and cultures, with and within schools to promote a culture of literacy and creativity, and connect them with individuals and organisations that make up Melbournes literature community.Our programs and workshops provide unique and fun storytelling opportunities for children and young people. They create stories, poems, podcasts, comics, games and rap songs - experimenting with different ways to express their ideas in their own words! We connect young writers at the Building with emerging and best-selling authors, editors, publishers and publishing professionals, and encourage meaningful conversations and skill sharing for the benefit of young people.Our programs and workshops are FREE for children from marginalised backgrounds.
