On Friday 23rd November, the popular Scottish poet Rab Wilson will be the star attraction for a Poetry Café evening at Zest Juicing and Coffee Bar on South Street. Zest will have an in-house licensed bar for the evening, and there will be open mic slots if anyone wants to bring along their own poems. Free snacks will also be on offer – we’ve even heard murmurings of a repeat of the stovies which were so popular at our early evening open mic event there last year. The event kicks off at 7pm, and it’s free, so just come along.
Then on St Andrews Day itself, Friday 30th November, as part of the St Andrews Food and Drink Festival, StAnza are collaborating with Food from Fife on a lunchtime session, Wake Up and Smell the Stovies, with the irrepressible performance poet Robin Cairns offering his brand of tasty bites to give the session a special poetic savour. This is another free event, this time in the Supper Room at the Town Hall in Queens Gardens, starting at around 1.00pm.
