Hello and welcome to our Patreon page! For those of you wondering what on earth this all is, let us get you up to speed.

Back in the olden days, there were patrons of the arts—people who for some incredible reason wanted to support artists in their creative endeavours. Patreon is bringing this back.

Who Are We?

Loud Poets launched in February 2014 as a collective of artists involved in the Scottish poetry scene who came together with the simple aim of promoting a more performative style of spoken word.
Over the last three years we have established two regular monthly spoken word nights in Edinburgh and Glasgow, taken part in the Edinburgh, Brighton and Prague Fringe Festivals, ran workshops, created books and CDs, and collaborated with musicians and videographers to create a unique style of performance poetry accessible to anyone with wifi. Now we are asking for your help to expand our reach and creativity. Your donations will not only go to creating brand new videos for everyone to enjoy but also to paying all the poets, musicians, photographers and videographers who put all of their time, love and energy into Loud Poets.
Thank you for whatever you are able to give! Thank you for being part of what we do. Thank you for being LOUD!!
