Help us to wrap up StAnza 2018

In a brand new event for 2018, we’re opening up the floor to you! Join us for a lively panel and audience discussion with Geart Tigchellar, Katie Hale, Marjorie Lotfi Gill and Owen Lowery. We’ll be sharing thoughts on the poetry and performances, events and ideas which have made the festival one to remember. All of that interwoven with a few last poems and performances from Ulrike Almut Sandig and Andy Fierens to keep you sated until next year – as well as a drink of wine on the house so that you can join us in raising a glass to StAnza 2018!

Supported by the Goethe-Institut, the Government of Flanders, Flanders Literature, the Dutch Foundation for Literature and with assistance from the Royal Netherlands Embassy. Owen Lowery’s appearance at StAnza is commissioned and supported by Unlimited, celebrating the work of disabled artists, with funding from Arts Council England.

Andy Fierens: Charlie De Keersmacker
