Each festival focuses on two themes which weave around each other to give every StAnza its own unique flavour. In addition to this different topics may give a special focus to the festival. Poetry in translation has always been an important element at StAnza festivals and in a development on that, StAnza 2016 will also have a specific language focus on German, with support from the Goethe Institute in Glasgow.
