Featuring our Poets

Kate Spencer – Kate Spencer is a poet, performer, producer, podcaster – basically, if it starts with ‘p’ she’s in. She’s sexy, saucy, and salacious; funny, flirty, and filthy; raunchy, ravishing, and ridiculous. She makes cool shit happen, mostly at the Fringe Bar, and fu%#ing loves her life right now.

Jordan Hamel (he/him) is a Pōneke-based poet and performer. He was the 2018 New Zealand Poetry Slam champion and represented Aotearoa at the World Poetry Slam Champs in the USA. He is the co-editor of Stasis Journal and co-editor of a forthcoming Climate Change Poetry Anthology from AUP. He has poems in Poetry NZ Yearbook, Landfall, The Spinoff, takahē, Sport, Mimicry and elsewhere.

Alayne Dick is a writer/performer. She may or may not be a mermaid pretending to be a human. She may or may not be incredibly dangerous. For legal reasons, we must confirm that she has not done a cheeky curse on any lost sailors.

Meow is a venue based in Wellington, New Zealand and a staple on the New Zealand touring  circuit since 2008. Meow ‘the label’ was conceived during the first Covid-19 lockdown in 2020, as an outlet while the live music industry was on hold. ‘The Label’ is a natural progression for the owners Rahine and Damian as they continue to support emerging & established artists through label services, management & live performance
