Byron Writers Festival commences Restart Programs. In late April StoryBoard authors, new and old, came together to elevate their presentations and workshops in order to maximise their effectiveness and positive impact on students. The three-day workshop was a result of the Create NSW grant, which aims to support and (safely) restart the arts and cultural sectors.
