Stories of personal journeys help others find their own path
WE ARE LOOKING FOR WRITERS AND STORYTELLERS TO JOIN THIS EXCITING PROJECT.
Spill the Beans is proud to partner with Multicultural Services, Northern Beaches to produce a collection of personal stories of migrants and refugees who have settled on the Northern Beaches within the past five years.
Over three short Saturday sessions, storytellers share their stories of how they overcame the challenges of settling into a new country with writers. The stories are published online and in book format.
First meeting 6 April
