Hi there, I'm Jodie van de Wetering.  I'm a writer and performer, and usually have a couple of arts projects on the boil at any given time.  At the moment I'm working on Rocky Radio: Live on Stage, a night of radio plays performed live with manual sound effects.  You'll find us at large in Rockhampton's Walter Reid Cultural Centre in February 2018.

I write short fiction and poetry, and have had work published in anthologies including Grave Warnings (Pencil Tip Publishing, 2016), Sproutlings (Invisible Elephant Press, 2015), and the Bimblebox 153 Birds touring multimedia exhibition.  I'm the editor of Rocky Street Press, an online arts and culture magazine covering Central Queensland communities.

As a performer I've been part of several productions including Monsoon (Keppel Coast Arts, 2017) and Aussie Shakespeare (Discomfort Zone Theatre Company, 2017), as well as various adventures in stand up and improv comedy.  I'm part of Discomfort Zone Theatre Company, a small crew with varied backgrounds from acting to writing to Japanese physical theatre.  As a unit we specialise in new works, improv, and non-traditional theatre.
