They're not even in high school yet, but already they're published authors.
Through a partnership between healthcare organisation Royal Far West and literacy co-operative Littlescribe, rural primary schoolers have put pen to paper to share their young stories of their lives so far.
Collaborating with their city counterparts, at the end of the book-writing process, the two groups of year 6 classes swap their published works.
With the country children reading the city stories and vice versa, they each gain insight into the lives of the world's other half, said program director Anna Bowden.
"The pilot program has just wound up, and we had schools from all over Bourke, Walget, Lightning Ridge, and then a school in Manly in Sydney," Ms Bowden said.
"One country kid was impressed that a kid in the city went on holidays in a private jet, and well, I think I'd be impressed by that too."
The My Life Story initiative is aimed at removing barriers to literacy education that commonly exist across country areas.
It recognises that one in three children in rural or remote areas struggle significantly with developmental health, and this has ripple effects throughout their learning experience.
"The teachers tell us that they're really engaged with the project," Ms Bowden said.
"Even the most reluctant writers get on board, because it's a topic they are interested in.
"For those who might struggle a little bit to write, they can paint or draw most of their book too, so they still get a pride in what they've created."
The variety of stories produced by the students, Ms Bowden said, speaks to the vast scope of experiences across the country.
"We had some very meaningful stories, some were very cute, and some were even quite sad," she said.
"One that sticks in my mind is Charlie from Walgett. He wrote his in sort of a poem-style, because he liked poetry, and he wrote about his life and invited everyone to come visit him.
"His pictures were very good, and it [centred on] going fishing, helping on the farm, hunting and spending a lot of time at the river.
"I spend a lot of time out in country areas, and reading his book reminded me that it really is so different in the country."
Currently 25 schools across country NSW have signed on for the second iteration of the program. But Royal Far West is continuing to appeal for more schools to get on board via their online submission portal.
