Adelaide High School students have immersed themselves in creative writing, editing, and publishing workshops to produce these fictional depictions of their home city and its surrounds. From Hindley Street to the Princes Highway, from Aldgate to Glenelg, their remarkable stories reflect the diverse interests, fertile imaginations, and keen insights of Adelaide’s youth. In these pages, you’ll be plunged into the highs and lows of family life, romantic relationships, bullying, disability, mental illness, scientific exploration, treasure hunting, time travel, musical ambitions, sporting aspirations, Indigenous experience, pre-colonial utopias and future dystopias. You might even spot a zombie on King William Street!
