A Double Bill for StAnza

Sunday 20 September 2015

We're delighted to be teaming up again with Zest, our favourite coffee shop in St Andrews, for our event for this year's Book Week Scotland in November.

This year we've invited Andy Jackson, editor of Double Bill, the popular sequel to Split Screen, to bring his road show to St Andrews for a StAnza special.

The live Double Bill show which he hosts is a fast-moving sixty-minute mix of poetry, visuals, sounds and ideas from some of the UK's best-loved poets, including W. N. Herbert and Tim Turnbull. Double Bill (published in 2014 by Red Squirrel Press) is an anthology of poems taking their influences from movies, television, music and popular culture. A stellar cast of over 100 writers contributed poems on a range of themes ranging from Morecambe & Wise and The Italian Job to The Archers and Van Morrison.

The St Andrews Double Bill will take place at Zest Coffee Shop, 95 South Street, St Andrews, on Thursday 26th November from 6.30pm to 8.00pm. It will be a free event but limited by the capacity of the venue, so if you'd like to book a seat, please email stanza@stanzapoetry.org.
