Shared Stories 2018

Once again in 2018, De La Salle College will be involved in the ‘Shared Stories’ anthology series alongside 26 other Catholic schools in the State. The initiative sees schools publish artworks, visual representations, and pieces of writing relating to a set theme and then launched as a formal publication for all to admire. Anthologies are stored in both the National Library of Australia and State Library of Victoria collections. It is a wonderful project that gives many students the opportunity to become published writers and artists. Amongst this privilege, each year the Australian Catholic University and other sponsors select their favourite pieces for awards.

Each year that anthology grows with last year in excess of 570 full‐colour pages. Each student who is published will receive their own copy of this together with access to the online publication of their works. This year’s theme is Live Simply, Simply Live, encouraging students to interpret this in their own unique style, with the artistic and literary opportunities endless. Students will be encouraged to interpret the theme personally and to create new works, while also reflecting on the potential of their current coursework in English and Art classes as submissions.

Students will be offered the opportunity to draft, edit and refine works with teachers at the College during lunchtimes, with the final piece of work being submitted in early October. The publication will be launched in November at Star of the Sea. All participating students will have the opportunity to celebrate the results of their creative ability and efforts and recognise outstanding works from all 27 schools! Please contact Miss McBean for more information and stay tuned for a meeting next week to get involved.
