IMPORTANT NOTICE: This event is free. It is, of course, limited to the capacity of the venue, and if you’d like to reserve a ticket to be sure of getting in, you can now do so by contacting our box office on boxoffice@stanzapoetry.org.  However, the tickets will only be available for collection on the day and they will not be issued until 40 minutes before the event starts. They cannot be received online or by post. Reservations will expire on any tickets not collected 15 minutes before the event starts. Or, of course, you can take your chances on just turning up on the day.

On the eve of StAnza 2018 we teamed with the Institute for Theology, Imagination and the Arts to give six poets the opportunity to work with Michael Symmons Roberts, Sir James MacMillan and researchers from the ITIA on a new poem. Following in the footsteps of the TheoArtistry Composer’s Scheme, each poet was paired with a theologian while working on a poem responding to a piece of Biblical Scripture. We’re looking forward to the first airing of the works in progress at this event!
