This year's festival is launched four weeks from tomorrow. The printed brochure is now published so watch out for copies appearing in all the usual locations. However if you’d like us to post you one free of charge, just send us an email on firstname.lastname@example.org. Or if you’re in the Glasgow area, you can pick up a copy on Thursday 6 February, at our free Glasgow Preview event at Tell it Slant poetry bookshop, 134 Renfrew Street, Glasgow, 6.30pm-7.00pm, part of an evening of poetry from St Mungo’s Mirrorball, followed at 7.30pm at the Arts Club by Bernard MacLaverty remembering Seamus Heaney.
We’ve meantime added another eleven events to this year’s programme for 5-9 March. The Saturday In Conversation will feature Douglas Dunn, recently awarded the Queen’s Gold Medal, talking about a life in poetry with Peggy Hughes, his former student and now programme director for the Dundee Literary Festival. And check out a further ten installations and exhibitions on our online programme at www.stanzapoetry.org.
