The stories appearing in In Short are the first stories written by students as an assignment. Their longer stories are published in News. The students also covered events at the Sydney Writers’ Festival in Autumn semester and the Sydney Fringe Festival in Spring semester as a writing-under-pressure exercise for Research & Reporting.
