The Martian Embassy

Greetings Earthlings! The Martian Embassy and Gift Shop is now open for business.

The Martian Embassy and Gift Shop is the retail arm of the Sydney Story Factory, a not-for-profit creative writing centre for young people in Redfern, Sydney. Volunteer tutors work with students one-on-one or in small groups to write stories of all kinds, which we publish in as many ways as possible. Programs target marginalised students, and those from Indigenous and non-English speaking backgrounds, but are open to everyone. All classes are free. You can find out more about us here:

The non-virtual Martian Embassy and Gift Shop is found at the front of the Sydney Story Factory. Students enter the writing centre through the shop, and it acts as a portal, transporting them to a place where new things are possible. It is also handy when you need a tin of gravity on the way home.
