About Quiet Lightning
A blind, submission-based reading series since the first show in December 2009, Quiet Lightning presents all forms of writing as a literary mixtape: each author follows the next without banter or introduction so that the energy, language, and themes all build off of one another to create a composite work of art, carefully put together each month by two different curators (for which they also accept applications) and printed verbatim in a corollary publication.
