Now publishing: West of the River
People stories are our speciality, and we're coming to you.
Going old-school with printed magazines means a need to distribute physical copies to the homes and commercial premises of our friends. Rather than see this as a simple commercial transaction, we see it as an unmissable opportunity for creating connections and reducing social isolation.
When you sign up to receive your copy, you also create an opportunity for our team to sort, pack, label, mail and deliver your item. While this seems like a very simple interaction, social and work opportunities can be valuable for people on the autism spectrum who desire a greater involvement with community. Here at Monotreme, we also believe that they should be paid properly for their work.
Storytelling in our magazine aims to foster community health - including mental health - and create connections that work together to build social and individual resilience. In addition to this, we share stories of people doing great work to protect our ecosystem and every living thing within it. Like the ripples in our logo, we believe that even the tiniest gift of goodwill can potentially benefit our world for generations to come. We love to tell the stories that perpetuate that goodwill.
We also put our Acknowledgement of Country into real action, with our covers featuring the adults and young people of the proud Traditional Owners of this land - the Darug Nation.
Via your "West of the River" magazine order, we can ensure that we're creating media that permanently and gladly takes responsibility for social and environmental impact.
Media for good is here.

Our Schools in Focus section has proved to be popular with our communities and we're still hunting for just the right primary, secondary and homeschooling stories! If you're implementing innovative school or homeschool-based learning that takes place west of the river, we would love to hear from you and your students.
