A user's guide to a pandemic by young people

A User’s Guide to a Pandemic is a digital collection of writing by young people in Australia sharing their experiences of living through the current surreal times of COVID19.

The online book is the result of a collaboration between youth writing centres Story Factory (Sydney), 100 Story Building (Melbourne), The Story Island (Tasmania) and StoryBoard (Byron Bay) aimed at amplifying the voices of young people during the uncertainty and disconnection of the pandemic.

Most young writers participated in online workshops delivered by the four centres and created pieces of writing that investigate the challenges, unexpected joys, boredom, worries and hopes of these unusual times.
