The yR

The yarraReporter is a grassroots journalism platform for anyone that lives, works or plays in the City of Yarra. We know our community is more than just the latest food trend or fashion tip – although we love those too. It’s the voices, the faces, the histories that make it the ever-changing and vibrant precinct of Melbourne that it is.

We are a passionate group of writers and creatives who find and tell local stories, but also give others the platform and tools to tell their own. We do this by providing free mentoring and journalism skills training through facilitated workshops, which can lead to a greater involvement within the yarraReporter.

No matter your level of writing skill or media experience, we’re interested in hearing what you have to say. Whether it be through the written word, recorded voice or image, everyone has a story to tell. If you want us to help you tell yours, please get in touch.
