Session Announcement: ABC Heywire

Tuesday 1 March 2016

Heywire is a chance for regional and rural youth to have their voices heard. This annual storytelling competition, run by the ABC, showcases what it’s like to grow up in regional, rural and remote Australia. In this session, Heywire alumni and staff discuss the process of creating a Heywire story; from entering the competition, to editing the winning entries and working with ABC producers to transform the stories into pieces for radio or television. Winning Heywire is a chance for young people to not only experience the media process firsthand, but to see the impact which a well-told story can have.
