What’s your story? Who are the women of the Riverina on Wiradjuri Country? Their hopes and dreams? Their past and future? We are inviting all women and female-identifying writers to come to a workshop at Wagga Wagga Gallery to connect and unleash their stories. The workshop fee is minimal and is supported by Eastern Riverina Arts.

All women are invited from the region broadly inclusive of all villages and towns in and around Albury, Wagga Wagga, Leeton, Griffith, Junee, Narrandera, Deniliquin, Hay, and Condobolin.

If your story is selected it will form a powerful multi-arts theatrical production with projection and commissioned music toured by professional actors and musicians to KXT Broadway Theatre in November 2024, Wagga Wagga Art Gallery and Melbourne.

Please register for a  workshop on any day from Tuesday 23 July  – Sunday 28 July.

Do you have a story you have already written? All women welcome to submit your story - short monologues (800 words) at the booking link.
