Catch a glimpse of our poets taking poetry for a walk this afternoon

That ubiquitous object of the modern day, the smartphone camera, turns the spaces of the everyday into a stage, opening up performance spaces where we least expect them. Following on from our Poetry on the Move last year, we’ll be sending poets and performers into town to produce and perform poetry throughout St Andrews, whether on the street or the beach, at bus stops or in coffee shops. While filming each other perform, our poets will serve up unexpected poetry to passers by.
