FATSILC is pleased to announce the launch of the Young Indigenous Writers Initiative, a mentoring program run by FATSILC that helps young Indigenous writers to develop their writing skills and get their work published. The aim of the program is to foster and promote the new generation of Indigenous writers in Australia. Chris Munro, a Kamilaroi man, is our first Young Indigenous Writers Initiative participant and Voice of the Land contributor. You can read his article ‘Interpreting: A Cultural Conduit?’ on page ten. Special thanks to Bruce Pascoe, a Bunurong man and professional writer, who mentored Chris. Visit for more information about Bruce and his work. If you are an Indigenous person between the age of 16 and 25, have a passion for writing and interest in language and culture, you are eligible to apply for the Young Indigenous Writers Initiative.
