REGISTER FOR Performance Poetry for Mob Presented by: Laniyuk for this mob


A series of three workshops with local performance poet Laniyuk co-run with Alison Whittaker, Maddee Clark and DRMNGNOW’s Neil Morris. Designed specifically for mob to develop techniques in writing, publishing and performing poetry.

Dates and times:

Day 1: Wednesday 22nd May 9am-12pm
Day 2: Thursday 23rd May 9am-12pm
Day 3: Saturday 25th May 9am-12pm


Day 1 with Alison will include conversations around why we write and the writing process. We’ll start with blank pages and create poetry, then receive constructive feedback to work on and bring back to the next session.


Day 2 with Maddee will look at the editing process and navigating the world of publishing. How to and where to submit. Writing and editing continues to develop your work and have a finished piece for the final workshop.


Day 3 with Neil will cover topics including maintaining energy while developing a career in the arts as an Indigenous person as well as how to keep ourselves emotionally, mentally and spiritually safe. Performance techniques will be workshopped so you’ll have a complete piece ready to share!
