Not giving up my day job

I am extremely grateful that, after 6 weeks or so of uncertainty, I can keep my job working with young asylum seekers.

I work with an NGO, and as you can imagine, given the current political climate regarding asylum seekers, things have been a little bit tense for both the clients and staff.

The good news is that I have been offered the hours I want, which hopefully means I can get back to writing some more. I have a story to tell and I’m pretty keen to get it down on paper as quick as I can.

I’m also in the process of applying for an Arts SA grant for a mentorship with a South Australian author. It’s my first shot at grant writing (an art form in itself!), but I figure you’ve got to be in it to win it. Will keep you posted.
