inScribe Magazine was a joint production between Melbourne Polytechnic’s Bachelor of Writing and Publishing and the Darebin City Council. Originally published under the title Northern Notes, inScribe featured articles on art and literary culture, news and events in and around the northern suburbs of Melbourne.

The summer and winter editions were distributed across the Darebin region twice yearly and included short stories, essays, poetry, feature articles, profiles, news and reviews. From issue six (winter 2012) the inScribe newspaper evolved into a thirty-two page full colour magazine with an electronic version available in PDF format for eReader programs.

The creation of each issue of inScribe involved a unique collaboration between the Darebin Community Group and the Bachelor of Writing and Publishing’s third year ‘Publishing Studio’ students. Each student was assigned a ‘position’ within the production structure, from editor-in-chief to production manager to distribution coordinator. They then synchronised their role with select members of the Community Group to edit and develop workable content from submissions derived from the Darebin region. All Melbourne Polytechnic cohorts completed a number of tasks including attending meetings and briefs, copy editing, material sourcing, design and layout, prepress production, print supplier liaison, marketing and distribution.
