This Breath is a creative response to a moment in time—this moment in time—by young people living in regional South Australia. An opportunity to reflect and to capture what has been for many a difficult time to breathe—whether it was mass bushfires, #blacklivesmatter, COVID or the ongoing climate crisis, the past two years will continue to shape the future of young people for decades to come.
These 9 writers were selected from across regional South Australian through an open call out by Writers SA. Each writer was supported by the Writers SA regional team and professional mentors to craft and polish their words.
This digital showcase with National Young Writers Festival brings those words to you, wherever you are. Breathe them in.Featuring:
