AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'These stories were collected through two nationwide writing competitions in 2002 and 2004 by Australians Against Racism Inc, a creative grassroots human rights and social justice organisation that was formed in 2001. Both competitions asked young people to use an interview or direct personal experience of displacement as their starting point, and then left them free to choose whether to write their story as fiction or essay. [...]

'Following the competition in 2002, we edited the hugely successful anthology Dark Dreams: Australian Refugee Stories by Young Writers Aged 11-20 Years [...]. No Place Like Home is both the second anthology in what we hope will be a series, and unique. [...]

'This volume includes stories of hatred and tolerance; rejection and love; acceptance and alienation; war, aftermath and resolution; fear and hope; great suffering and great heroism; small journeys and unimaginably huge journeys' (pp. 1 & 2).
