Share your story - No Excuses! project

26 JUL 2015 | BY KATHLEEN MCGUIRE

You are invited to contribute to the No Excuses! project, presented by the School of Hard Knocks and the Big West Festival – visit: https://noexcuses.teamapp.com/

The project is supported by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria.

Are you a woman who lives, works, socialises or perhaps grew up in Melbourne’s western suburbs? Do you have a real story related to family violence to share as poetry or prose?

We are accepting contributions of original, nonfictional poetry or prose in any language related to family violence. Composers Christina Green and Kathleen McGuire will use the contributions as source material for creating a song suite to be performed by hundreds of women! Read below for more information.
