The Quiet Compere
Sat 12 Sep 2015
A feast of words, this national poetry tour hosted by Sarah Dixon sees ten poets perform for ten minutes each.
Sarah L Dixon runs regular Quiet Compere events in Manchester. She hosted a Medical-themed poetry event at Cheltenham Poetry Festival in 2014. Sarah is presently touring the usual Quiet Compere format (ten poets x ten minutes each) nationally, after a successful tour of the North in 2014. Quiet Compere events enlist great established poets and accomplished poets newer to the scene. 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 Tour is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
