Quiet Lightning is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization; 100% of all donations are tax-deductible and go toward the generation of literature and the foundation of a public egalitarian platform for expression of all kinds.
Since December 2009 we have presented 1,657 readings by 867 authors in 136 shows, 115 publications, and 91 venues, from dive bars and art galleries to state parks and national landmarks, selected through a blind submission process by 72 different curators. The shows are free and all the artists are paid.
Help us keep it going! Thanks to the work of dozens of volunteers and interns, we need just one paid full-time staff member to make this sustainable.
There are a few easy ways to support us:
