A Sweatshop in a Red Room
talks measured in meters,
wind-torn. walking with friend.
said the play something
about silenced democracy.
~ Duy Quang Mai from 'Of Endings', 2019 Sweatshop poet
Following our first collaboration Speaking to the Suburbs – Writing from the West, Red Room Poetry and Sweatshop: Western Sydney Literacy Movement teamed up again in 2019 and 2020 for A Sweatshop in a Red Room.
Recognising the deeply personal, yet universal, journey of mapping one's identity, Red Room Poetry is proud to elevate the stories of a diverse range of voices through the bridging medium of poetry.
The poems are commissioned and published by Red Room Poetry and edited by Sweatshop Manager, Winnie Dunn.
