StAnza 2016 brochure now launched!

Friday 29 January 2016

Thanks to everyone who helped make our Edinburgh Preview event last evening at the National Library of Scotland such a success. Great performances from Rita Bradd and Katie Ailes, and a wonderful taster reading from Don Paterson. Despite the discouraging weather it was lovely that so many people - including STV's Live at Five - turned up to join us in launching this year's festival brochure, with cover art from one of this year's StAnza exhibitions from artist Lucy Jones.

You can get your copy at the Scottish Poetry Library from today and shortly from the Byre Theatre, Visit Scotland in St Andrews, and other venues across Scotland, or free by post if you email  We've also uploaded a pdf of the brochure, see below and on the Festival 2016 page of our website.

Thanks to those of you who came along to support us yesterday, and to our hosts at the NLS. If you missed it, here are a few photographs, and you can still see the STV short broadcast on the STV Player at about 33 minutes in, just after the commercial break.
