Festival brings stories to your door

This year's Story Week will help bring art back to Sydney streets and beyond.

Imagine ordering a home delivery, but instead of lukewarm pepperoni pizza, you get a spoken word artist who comes to your door (fully vaccinated, of course), and stands two metres away to perform you their story.

This is just one of the possibilities in Story Week (22-28 November), an annual literary festival in Sydney that happily weds words and live performance, and takes on a hybrid model of in-person and digital events.
