“Welcome to the sweatshops of Western Sydney, where every Aussie gets a fair go. Pockets are full and guns are empty. There are no racists here. No misogynists and no homophobes. Where the Wogs rule and the Anglos have assimilated.”
Presented by Sweatshop Western Sydney Literacy Movement in association with the University of Western Sydney Writing & Society Research Centre exclusively for the Emerging Writers Festival, Sweat Shop Stories sees eight powerful writers reveal the truths about Sydney’s west. The group, consisting of Michael Mohamen Ahmad (pictured), Adra Barut, Luke Carman, Felicity Castagna, Tamar Chnorhokian, Andy Ko, Peter Polites and Fiona Wright, could be considered one of the finest collective of writers currently performing in Australia.
