‘Dialect is particular, personal and dynamic. A way of making words belong, both to your community and yourself. The ideal storyteller.
In these pages, writers from refugee and migrant backgrounds give you a glimpse into their own atlas. Through narrative, articles, poetry and instructions they communicate a multilingual way of life.’
Dialect is a publication of young writers based in Melbourne from diverse backgrounds who participated in ‘Global Express’: a yearlong facilitated writing program that focused on skills and networking development.
