Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, The Penny Mint sought to build a community of passionate young writers. In the last two years, it has become clear how crucial community is to create a healthier, kinder world where we all flourish.

As we cautiously enter what will hopefully become this new world, it is you — our community — that we look towards as we once again try and build a platform for new voices based in Narrm/Melbourne's western suburbs. But we can't do this alone. Your insights will help us to design a program of events, publication and spaces that places storytelling front and centre in 2021/22.

Thank you, in advance, for taking the time to answer this short survey. If you have any questions, please contact us here.
