It has been quite a week for StAnza. Our Poetry Café night at our favourite Coffee and Juicing Bar, Zest in South Street, was the opening event for the St Andrews Festival currently taking place. Rab Wilson was supported by an international line-up of local poets taking to the open mic, all dished up with complimentary haggis stovies. And stovies were a support act again yesterday when Robin Cairns featured in our lunchtime event for St Andrews Day in partnership with Food from Fife, all as part of the St Andrews Food Fair.  

Meantime, while all this has been happening, we’ve been working hard to get the feast of poetry which is the core programme for StAnza 2013 prepared, cooked, garnished and served up for St Andrews Day. So, if you’ve been eager to hear what’s in store for next March, all is now revealed. Just click here or go to our website at to view more than 200 pages about the events and the poets, visual artists, musicians, writers and others taking part.

 Tickets don’t go on sale until early January so you have a whole month to browse and make decisions about which events you want to see. And the programme isn’t complete yet. We’ll be adding a few more events and names over the next month so keep checking the online programme for the latest update.
