Shane Hollands is a veteran of the New Zealand performance poetry scene and the current president of The NZ Poetry Society.

He is known for his innovative work with poetical music of differing genres from jazz to electronica to metal, and his efforts to give other poets a platform to perform; he established performance poetry collective The Literatti, and the NZ national celebration of beat poetry, The Kerouac Effect.

He was one half of the art-music duo Beautiful Losers, infamous DJ of the ‘Dirty Wordz’ radio show and is the front-man and poet for the Wordcore band, Freaky Meat.

Copies available on the night or from:

David Eggleton has published a number of poetry collections, and produced a number of recordings with his poetry set to music by assorted musicians and composers. His poems have appeared in many recent Aotearoa New Zealand anthologies, including Whetu Moana I and II: Contemporary Polynesian Poems in English. He's currently writing a new collection of occasional poems for release later in 2018.

Eliana Gray is a poet from Dunedin. Her style is elliptical, drawing from personal experience. Sometimes confronting, always filtering towards the cracks. In her short time involved in the New Zealand literary community she has had work accepted both in print and online, won the 2013 University of Otago Poetry Competition and represented Otago at the 2013 National Slam.

Her first chapbook: ‘A Certain Knowledge’ was self-published in 2016. Her second 'Dust & Thread' will be available for purchase from the author, on the night.

Eris Seress is the darkness and the light, the guest walking in from the fog to sit at the table at the space you have left open, her lilt is the call you were not expecting. Be surprised.

Victor Billot lives in Dunedin. His work has recently been published in Mimicry, Brief, the Phantom Billstickers Cafe Reader and the political poetry anthology Manifesto published by Otago University Press (2017).
