Quiet Compere events enlist great, established poets and emerging voices. The Quiet Compere introduces them with little fanfare so the poems (and not the poet's track record) tell you all you need to know.

The Quiet Compere format invites ten poets to read for ten minutes each, mixing page and performance, experimental and nature, quiet emotional and flat-out arms-wide passion.

Read what they all say...

You set a little powder keg under the palm tree and encourage the evening’s castaways to light the fuse. You’re terrific. My, but you work so hard and affectionately at this game of the imagination.

Adrian Mealing, The Very Grimm Brothers and UK Touring (tour company for Roger McGough, Ian McMillan, Andrew Motion and more)
