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.

Your attention to detail is stunning. From flyers to payment stuff, thanking us all, photos and the blog too.
Charlie Jordan, DJ at Smooth FM Drive-time and Decadent Diva
