Lust for Life – A rock journalism workshop with Mark Mordue
May 29, 2021
Maitland City Library
Mark Mordue has worked as an internationally published writer for the last forty years, consistently published across mainstream, literary and counter-culture media. Known as a ground-breaking rock journalist, his career embraces poetry, travel writing, award-winning criticism, and an acclaimed biography, Boy on Fire – The Young Nick Cave. “Rock ‘n’ roll taught me to be free in my approach and to draw on anything and everything to do great work. Rock journalism infuses all the stories I’ve written; an independent attitude and energy as anything else. It connects to a more passionate, poetic and intuitive criticism and way of writing about people and places.” Mark’s workshop will cover rock journalism, the art of interviewing, and feature writing.
