Alexander Hutchison

Surprise, Surprise, StAnza’s second event as part of this year’s St Andrews Food and Drink Festival, is a free event taking place on Saturday 16th November at Zest Juicing and Coffee Bar on South Street. Poet Alexander Hutchison, whose latest collection, Bones & Breath, is due out from Salt Publishing next week, and whose celebration of the birth of Macsween’s vegetarian haggis has become a Scottish poetry legend, will offer a selection of tasty poems served up with haggis stovies and the occasional song. It all kicks off at 6.30pm so come and listen, or bring along your own food and drink poems to read at the open mic slot. StAnza’s own Carly Brown, the Scottish Slam Champion for 2013 who came fourth in this year’s World Slam Championship in Paris, will MC the proceedings.

More information on this event is online at here, and don’t miss our other two events this month, , Tasting Notes: The Poetry of Wine at Luvians Ice Cream Parlour at 6.30pm on Friday 15th November, and our Delicious Poetry Workshop with Gerry Cambridge at 1pm at St Andrews Town Library on Tuesday 26th November.
