The StAnza brochure is almost ready and will be available fresh from the printers at this year's Edinburgh Preview of the programme for StAnza 2013. This free public event takes place at the National Library of Scotland, Wednesday 30th January at 6pm, and as ever we're very grateful to the NLS for their support. There will be short readings from three of this year's festival poets, Edinburgh's makar Ron Butlin and from the spoken word scene, Rachel McCrum, finalist in this year's BBC Slam, and her Inky Fingers colleague Harry Giles. All this, plus a trailer of the film of Alice Oswald's long poem Dart, which will be screened in full at StAnza in March, and a round up of some of the festival highlights. It promises to be a delightful hour of entertainment. If you're in the Edinburgh area, be sure not to miss it.
Ron Butlin, who'll read at StAnza 2013 Edinburgh Preview
