‘Before I die,

I did not wish to live separated from you.

I mourn the afflictions of the man I love,

would you defraud me of this second corpse?

In the home of Alcestis’ trauma,

in which she suffered;

to be content with a slave’s meal,

even though she is god.’

But why does she not speak?’

Euripides, Alcestis.



Over the course of 2022, a select group of young writers was invited to take part in a year-long writing program at Story Factory. Their goal was to produce a collection of poetry. This is one of the collections produced in these workshops. 

Year of Poetry 2022 was supported by the Copyright Agency’s Cultural Fund and Parramatta Leagues Club.
