In 2016 a team of storytellers from Sydney Story Factory visited Wee Waa to run creative writing workshops with students at Wee Waa High School. Now they’re back, to celebrate the launch of State of Mind, a book of stories, memoirs and poems written by over 100 young people from across New South Wales.

On Thursday 12 October Dr Cath Keenan, co-founder and 2016 Australian of the Year Local Hero, and Richard Short, Sydney Story Factory Storyteller-in-Chief, are at Coonamble High to present copies of the book that their students helped write.

Letters to the Editor

Northern Daily Leader

After ten years opposition to Santos and Eastern Star Gas efforts to get coal seam gas projects approved, North West NSW farmers respond in alarm to ACCC suggestions that onshore gas should be rolled out in the Pilliga and across farmland. 

While supporting ACCC calls for coal seam gas exports to be curbed for domestic supply, farmers and communities who depend on safe reliable supplies of underground water will not accept any coal seam gas project that puts at risk this valuable resource. 

As extreme drought conditions are being experienced across major parts of NSW, farmers, graziers and rural communities are faced with the worrying prospect of how their water supply will hold up in these conditions.
