The Penny Mint is a community for passionate young writers, amplifying new voices and providing a platform to publish, perform and perfect their words. Together, we’re building a space for experimental poetry, spoken word, essays, serialised fiction and everything in between.
Penny is the brainchild of writer, performer and educator Mia Boonen, who longed for a space amongst the growing Melbourne creative scene for young writers to thrive. Together with co-founders Jake Stevens and Ella Crowley, Penny was brought to life in December 2018; since then, we’ve published over 80 pieces - including contributions filed from remote towns in Vietnam - and have plenty more on the way!
Looking to contribute? Check out our submissions page for more information.
We’re always on the look out for new writers to join our growing team! The best way is to upload a submission is using this form – if you’d like to get in touch with The Penny Mint team about anything else, you can do so here.
We aim to read and reply to all submissions in a timely manner, so hang tight!
