Poetry in Residence

Tuesday 12 January 2016

Clare Mulley was Poet in Residence at StAnza 2015. Over those busy five days, inspired by moments and events, poets encountered, chance overheard remarks or random thoughts which the heat of the festival threw out, she produced a series of instant poems which were informally posted around the festival, brim full of immediacy. This year’s Poet in Residence is Harry Man, and we’ll also have a Poet-Performer in Residence and the HashtagPoet# in Residence, so there will be plenty of poetry appearing at StAnza 2016. Some were whisked away, some fell and were lost but happily we managed to rescue a few, of which here is a small selection.
