Stories of Sydney
15 Writers, 15 Stories
Stories of Sydney is the first collection by Seizure that focuses on place. We have been collaborating with writers from around Sydney to produce stories set in this diverse and sprawling city.
In partnership with Sweatshop and the University of Western Sydney Writing & Society Research Centre, we have focused on the culturally and linguistically varied range of writers living in Sydney – particularly in the amorphous area called ‘Western Sydney’. The collectionalso features new representations of inner Sydney.
Stories of Sydney celebrates the diversity that exists in this city. A place that is simultaneously welcoming and prejudiced, kind and cruel, aspirational and even eccentric in its mundanity. These stories range from family drama to modern noir, from cultural clashes to the burden of memory.
These are stories from lives you don’t often get to see, from authors as varied as the city itself.
