The Quiet Compere gives a platform to local page and performance poets, including both established and emerging voices. Help fund 2016 tour.

A Fourth date will be possible if the crowdfunder is fully-funded by 14th January 2016!

Hello Supporters!

I have done some calculating and if this project fully funds this would mean a fourth event would go ahead in Hebden Bridge in April as well as the three in Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester, Swindon and Wolverhampton. This is partly due to the match-funding from Whitworth Art Gallery and is an exciting prospect.

Please keep sharing and tweeting and tellign everyone you know about it.

 

Also, I am enjoying the challenge the compere events (there have been two now and the third will run on Sunday 27th December 3-6pm). I have set myself the challenge of writing a poem for anyone who has pledged - they give me 6 words - I make them into a poem (in most cases in less than ten minutes).  The first event saw me write 18 poems in 4 hours and yesterdays resulted in 14 in three hours!

There is a blog now set up for these events - so people not on Facebook can enjoy the poems too.

This is the link to the blog for this:

Thanks again Sarah x
