Express Media run a mentorship program for young writers and one of our members, Maya C of Year 9, has been accepted into  the fiction writing group this season. This is sensational news; most of the participants are adults.   Congratulations to Maya!      https://expressmedia.org.au/news/meet-the-young-writers-of-toolkits-fiction-2021/

Here are two brilliant examples of the genre by Maya :

houses awaiting

return of hulking, metal

spiders that had spun them out

tree branches fuzzy,

fragile and embarrassed by

brown leaves on the ground.
