Starshifter - by Isabelle Fischer
Over the course of 2017, a select group of young writers was invited to take part in a year-long writing program at the Sydney Story Factory. Their goal was to produce not just a fistful of poems, or a story, or a script, but a fully realised novella. The volunteers working with our budding novelists were there not so much as tutors but as mentors and peers, offering help and support while writing a novella of their own. This is one of the novellas produced in these workshops.

Beware human, for what you are holding in your hands is the answer. The answer to an ancient question, asked by races from all across the universe. What would happen if two aliens, government agents armed with magical crystals, three creepy dark floating things, a human that’s failed at life and a rhinoceros having an identity crisis are packed into a dingy, Western Sydney suburb?
