At Dirt Lane Press WE KNOW THAT


We and our partners know that creative endeavours help establish a sense of identity, belonging and purpose in meaningful, community-building ways.

Ultimately, we know that identity, belonging and purpose underpin personal resilience and wellbeing, that personal resilience and wellbeing build cohesive communities, and that cohesive communities generate strong futures.

We know quality literature helps to achieve these objectives.
