A free travelling creative writing workshop fostering the next generation of readers and writers in the Northern Rivers. StoryBoard brings acclaimed authors and illustrators directly to schools to work with students in all forms of creative writing.

In 2017 we reached over 7,000 students with our StoryBoard Bus, visiting schools as far as Tenterfield in the west, Kempsey in the south and Tweed Heads in the north.
