With tickets for StAnza 2015 now on sale, more good news for poetry lovers living in and around St Andrews. We are delighted that once again in association with the University of St Andrews’ Open Association, we are offering free places at our pre-festival Poetry Book Group sessions. Introduced for the first time three years ago in the run up to StAnza 2012, they have been very popular over the last three years and make a very welcome return this year. They allow people the chance to read and talk about some of the poets who will feature at StAnza 2014, including Simon Armitage, Carolyn Forché and Kei Miller.

As before, there will be three sessions, the first taking place on Wednesday 28th January, and two further sessions will take place on Wednesdays 11th and 25th February.

Christian Livermore from the University’s School of English will again lead these three early evening sessions from 5.30pm-7.30pm on Wednesdays in the Conference Room at St Katherine’s West at 16 The Scores, St Andrews KY16 9AX. To book a free place and for information on the poems to be discussed, contact Debbie Wilbraham on 01333 462275 or open.association@st-andrews, or just turn up at one or more of the sessions.
