National Poetry Day is on Thursday and StAnza's unique contribution to the celebrations take place on Saturday. There's still time to book a ticket!
Risk-A-Verse is a fast-paced poetry slam we've organised with our friends in Edinburgh, the fabulous Inky Fingers, spoken word collective. Fourteen poets are slotted to pit their wits against each other, with a hand-picked panel of discerning judges and the audience to decide on the winners. No one will be on their best behaviour and bad puns will be awarded prizes. The fun begins at 7.30pm at the Byre Theatre on Saturday 8 October. Tickets, £3 (£2) are available from the box office, 01334 475000.
Risk-a-verse is being held as part of the Scottish Mental Health Arts & Film Festival
