The Project

As part of a special pilot program supported by the Tim Fairfax Family Foundation, award-winning poet Kelly-Lee Hickey presented six intensive poetry workshops at the Centralian Senior College in Term 4. Kelly-Lee guided students through a range of writing activities to spark imaginations and help students publish their poems on The Disappearing app. You can read about Kelly's experience at Centralian Senior College here.
