Plans are well underway for StAnza 2013. The list of headlining poets includes Liz Lochhead, Robin Robertson, John Hegley, USA’s Mark Doty, Erín Moure and Ken Babstock from Canada, and Irish poet Paula Meehan. The festival will also focus on Welsh poetic talent with Robert Minhinnick and Samantha Wynne-Rhydderch already signed up to appear.
And we’re getting ready to unveil our full programme online at the end of November. So watch this space.
As part of the build-up to StAnza 2013, we’ll be releasing a series of podcasts of highlights from last March’s festival. The first of these is now up on our podcasts page here and features excerpts from readings by Kwame Dawes, Hilary Menos, Samuel Tongue and Nuala Watt, and some jazz from The Dave Batchelor Quintet.
