Hi there, I'm Jodie van de Wetering.  I'm a writer, performer, and community arts worker based in Rockhampton, Queensland.

I love supporting local artists, especially the independent, underground, and alternative.  I run Allsorts, an open-access project that organises open mic nights and community play readings to give people free, accessible opportunities to get involved in the arts. 

I'm the editor of online arts/lit mag Rocky Street Press, which celebrates work by artists and writers in rural and regional Australia, and Central Queensland in particular.  I write short fiction, poetry, and for performance, and have been published in several journals and anthologies.

I've acted in several local productions, and my biggest project to date was directing and producing Rocky Radio: Live on Stage, a full length live show in February 2018.  I have regular adventures in stand up comedy, improv and interactive events - to see what's coming up, check out the gig guide.
