The Mid North Coast Writers' Centre presents...

Following on from two poetry workshops offered in June and July 2021 by talented performance poets Will Small and Olivia Wolfe we are proud to offer poets in the region and beyond a platform to share their poetry. Our Make Waves Poetry Slam is an amateur event and open to all poetic genres. First of its kind in Port Macquarie this event held as a Satellite event during Artwalk 2022 will shine a light on this artform.

This event is also a fundraiser for us with funds going towards helping writers in the region. Consider donating when you purchase a ticket.
