As part of regional arts collective Mudgee Underground, Portia has introduced the smash-hit literary event Book Swap, as well as planning, promoting and programming other local arts events with her fellow collective members. Book Swap saw the audience enjoy readings by local author Summer Land and award-winning Western Sydney-based author Luke Carman, while the Alien Attack improvised storytelling event brought the talents of sci-fi author David M Henley to town.
