Westside Publications has published Three Novelettes, a series of 5000 word mini-novels written by three girls all under the age of 12.
Three Novelettes delves into the lives of South-Western Sydney residents
Dorothy Kamal, Isabella Whitcher and Khadija Mossavi, who each uniquely
describe their lives and relationships in one of Australia’s most linguistically
and culturally diverse regions.
Each novelette celebrates the importance of families to these young people.
Westside Publications Editor Michael Mohammed Ahmad and Sub-Editor
Felicity Castagna facilitated writing workshops with the girls over a series of
months to develop a body of work that delves into a world adult’s would never
get a glimpse into.
This unique novelette will be available online as an e-reader at http://www.byds.org.au/ as of February 17th next week.
A physical copy of the book can be accessed from BYDS or loaned from Bankstown Central Library.
