Imagine!

In the near future, humanity is reaching out far to the stars, establishing an outpost on the distant inhospitable surface of Callisto, the second-largest moon of Jupiter

In five breathtaking interlinked stories, we imagine life in the future and a future in space.

The stories feature a line-up of unforgettable, diverse young protagonists, who confront their fears, challenge themselves, and overcome the problems that life offworld presents, using STEM thinking, coupled with ingenuity, inventiveness, courage and the friendships that bind them.

Each story, available free for downloading, comes with a dramatized reading podcast featuring exciting young Australian actors, a rich sound design and a beautiful soundtrack.

There is also a suite of teaching resources for teachers and carers to enrich the comprehension and engagement with the stories.

And there will be a national creative writing and graphic art competition in 2023, inviting everyone to imagine themselves in the future and to be part of The Callistan Cycle.
