Melbourne Pen Show (MPS) is a not for profit association (incorporated in Victoria). We organise, arrange and promote the annual Melbourne Pen Show as a community event and aim to contribute to the education and awareness of the history, development and cultural impact of writing instruments and their role in society. We encourage community interest and participation in relation to all aspects of writing instruments for leisure and hobby activities.

The Melbourne Pen Show has been held each year since 1998 (COVID-19 allowing) and is run by a small group of volunteers. The MPS would love to see more pen enthusiasts join and assist us to build interest and involvement in Australia's small pen community. Feel free to inquire, think about it, act on it!
