James (Jim) Woodman


Jim is a writer who, following the ATY Project, 2007, formed a young writers’ group in the ACT which through his initiative published Roundabout Town, a collection of short stories.

“After the empowering ATY Project, I was filled with buzzing ideas that I desperately wished to express. Using all of the various skills the Project had instilled in me, I spent two months collecting a team of youth authors. Remembering the confidence I felt as I performed my work for the ATY Project celebration, I decided to publish our collection of stories. I feel that this achievement would have been impossible if not for Jolanta and the ATY Project. The confidence and writing skills I learnt over the summer were, and still are, invaluable.”
