Carole Bromley: "Sarah's creative energy and enthusiasm are legendary. She encourages and gives a platform to fellow poets. Where would we be without her?"
Peter White, Leeds (26th June 2013): "As she proved at Poetry by Heart’s event in June, not only does Sarah L Dixon have the knack of reading her own poetry in a way that makes the listener want to hear it again, she’s also proficient at pulling together a diverse but well-blended group of poets with contrasting styles to create a sparkling evening’s entertainment. I think I can speak for everyone who attended in saying that the Heart Centre will certainly look forward to the next appearance of ‘The Quiet Compère’.

Lead Poets reviews: http://martinvosperwrites.wordpress.com/2012/10/ http://myfanwyfox.wordpress.com/2012/11/24/read-out/
Rosie Garland: "Lead Poets is a lo-fi poetry event that started quietly and with little fanfare, letting itself be discovered for what it is. It has grown into a gathering of people who love words. No fuss, no flashing lights. Warm, friendly and clique-free. It is a rare thing."
Charlotte Henson: "Lead Poets is a small but perfectly formed evening in an intimate, shared environment. Host Sarah L Dixon, who calls herself the quiet compére, lives up to the name and guides the evening skillfully to a satisfying conclusion. Definitely one to look out for."
Rod Tame: "Really great night! Fab poetics and lovely company."
John Darwin: "Post Box Poets has a rare and lovely gentleness."
