NSW Library Diary Files

The NSW Library Diary Files project is seeking submissions in languages other than English.

This would make a great authentic writing activity for your students!

Details: The Diary Files collects vignettes from the everyday lives of the people of NSW and beyond. Tell us what you see, what you feel. Write about your morning coffee. Write about what you wish you said to her but never did.

You don’t need to be a writer to write here. We’re not after Sophocles or Virginia Woolf. You can write 20 words or write 300, submit anonymously or use your name. What did you have for breakfast, and what keeps you up at night? If you can read, you can write. Please write to us. Your words will become part of The Diary Files. Over to you.
