If you like to have your StAnza programme in paper and ink, the good news is that the StAnza brochure for 2020 is almost ready and packed with exciting listings. We expect to have supplies fresh from the printers at our Edinburgh preview event on 4 February.
Thanks to our generous and welcoming hosts, this preview takes place at the National Library of Scotland, George IV Bridge, Edinburgh EH1 1EW. This year it's on Tuesday 4 February from 2pm to 3pm, and we’re very grateful to the NLS for their support.
There will be short readings from two of this year’s festival poets, Robert Alan Jamieson and Jay G Ying, plus some music from Alannah Moar who will be playing at the Festival launch in March, as well as a round-up of some of the festival highlights. Rachel Rankin, who is taking part in our Norwegian/Scottish translation project will also offer some translations of poems from Norwegian. It promises to be a delightful hour of entertainment and if you’re in the Edinburgh area, be sure not to miss it. It’s a free event but please book a seat. You can do this online at this link.
And keep watching this space for news of this year's StAnza pre-festival Book Group, coming soon.
