After beginning her writing career in the zine world, Spencer signed a book deal and published the book Media:DIY: The Rise of Lo-Fi Culture, which centers around underground music, arts and do-it-yourself publishing (i.e. zines). A couple of years later she focused on crafting with the book The Crafter Culture Handbook.
She was a key player in organising Ladyfest London, a three day multi media event held in 2002, one of Britain's yearly contribution to the world-wide Ladyfest women's music and arts festival series. She is part of a promotions collective called The Bakery and is currently working towards a PhD in Digital Publishing.
