Art Music Design has been pleased to support the work of the Adelaide Plains Poets in their 2018 Adelaide Plains Festival of Words. Ali Devitt-Lansom worked with the poets to support their successful application to the Regional Arts Fund, through which they were able to host a series of workshops that highlighted the power of the written and spoken word and the importance of words in defining our culture.

Similarly, Leah Blankendaal presented a workshop at the Festival on the importance of digital communities to professional writers and how to monetise writing online. Together with workshop participants she explored the benefits of blogging, how to build your online community so that it becomes self-sustaining, and the role of social media in connecting with audiences. Leah will be following up with the poets later in 2018 to provide subsequent workshops in online advertising, social media and marketing strategies for creatives.

It is our pleasure to support the Adelaide Plains Poets in their work with writers from the Adelaide Plains and Gawler areas. We look forward to exploring new ways of developing economic opportunities for writers and creatives within these regions in the future.
