In the past few months, we’ve teamed up with the City of Launceston to support writers aged 16-25 as part of our residency program. These Young Writers in the City  explored their surrounds for inspiration, from the QVMAG to Civic Square. Venturing into some of Launceston’s iconic spaces, the writers-in-residence were celebrated as they presented the culmination of their work at Junction Arts Festival on September 11.
