This chapter builds on work conducted in the 'River Literacies' project, funded by the Australian Research Council (2004-2007). It explores children's sense of place through their creative writing and artwork, in the context of the Special Forever program, which was addressed to primary schools, their teachers and their students located in and across in the Murray-Darling Basin. It explores how place and space is linked, or not, in children's emerging identities via their literacy work.
