Recently 100 Story Building released their second Early Harvest magazine. This collaborative publication allows school children to have the opportunity to create alongside professional writers and illustrators. Themed 'zombies and space' this years edition is bursting with imaginative stories and wonderful illustrations.
100 Story Building (originally known as 'the Pigeons Project') have made many wonderful contributions to the Melbourne community by holding numerous creative writing and literacy programs. With the help of numerous amazingly dedicated volunteers, such projects result in self confidence, language /literacy development and personal development. Such benefits are priceless and we are lucky that such programs exist.
