Guest Poet: Olivia Hall
Olivia is a student at Otago, studying gender and politics. She has loved spoken word poetry for many years, but only last year worked up the courage to move from watching it online to trying her hand at writing and performing herself. As it turns out, slam poetry is a perfect combination of things Liv loves and she now takes every opportunity to be involved in the poetry scene in New Zealand. She recently represented Dunedin at the National Slam Poetry Competition, where she made the top seven and received the Organizer’s Choice Award.
Guest Musician: Caitlin Smith
I’m a ‘story singer’ and a ‘song poet’. I’ve five albums
including three with guitar-based jass trio The Fondue Set.
I’ve vocal coached and taught songwriting for over 18 years
and still love it.
Mike Alexander said I have “a voice that imagination
created”. Fiona Talron said was “mesmerizing” “an angel on
E” at Hotel DeBrett last night.
