Countdown …

Friday 27 November 2015

The countdown has begun. In about four days time, at some point on Monday 30th November between 12 noon and 12 midnight, we’ll unveil our core programme for our festival next March. As ever, there’s a sense of excitement and fulfilment as all our planning over the past months – and for some events, past years – is finally tweaked into shape and we hope when you see the programme, you’ll share our excitement both over big headline names and also small quirky features specially for 2016. So many poets to hear, so much to see and do. We hope this will be a festival which offers something for all your senses. 

This year the excitement is doubled. Not only do we unveil the programme for 2016 next Monday, we also unveil our new website. Our current website has served us well for the past eight years but it’s time to move on, and our new website allows us to offer more features, more engagement – and more poetry. Projects which have previously been stand-alone, such as the StAnza Blog and our Poetry Map of Scotland, will now become fully integrated with our other activities.

So, four more days, give or take a few hours. Watch this space!
