StAnza Poetry Festival 2018

stanza-bannerOne of the top poetry festivals in the UK, StAnza is famous for its friendly atmosphere and international focus, the place to hear favourite poets, discover new voices and enjoy the beautiful town of St Andrews and StAnza’s lively festival hub.

Choose from more than 80 readings, performances, discussions, poetry inspired installations and exhibitions and other cross-media performances in a range of atmospheric venues in and around the historic and lively town centre, or just sit and enjoy the lively festival scene with a coffee or drink. Sinéad Morrissey, Ko Un, Mark Ford, Gillian Allnutt, Liz Lochhead, Tara Bergin, William Letford, Dalgit Nagra and Michael Symmons Roberts are among the headliners for 2018.

This year’s themes are The Self and Borderlines and there will be our Going Dutch language focus (Dutch/Frisian/Flemish). Or take part in a wide range of workshops, a masterclass and open mic events.

StAnza 2018 will take place from 7th- 11th March at various venues around St Andrews.
