Beyond Any Curtain

StAnza Zoom

Myroslav Laiuk, Lyuba Yakimchuk, Roseanne Watt & Andrew Blair launch our Scottish/Ukrainian translation project

For StAnza 2021, we’re bringing together two Ukrainian poets, Myroslav Laiuk and Lyuba Yakimchuk, and two Scottish poets, Roseanne Watt and Andrew Blair, to collaboratively produce creative versions of each other’s work. Join us for a multilingual event as they present new work in Gaelic, English, Ukrainian and Hutsul, and discuss the translation process along with translator Uilleam Blacker. Poetry doesn't come fresher than this!

Book a place and the Zoom link will be sent to you in advance. We will also share the Zoom link on this page from 13:40 on the day of the event.

Books by festival poets are available here, with profits going to St Andrews bookshop J & G Innes.

In partnership with The International Book Arsenal Festival, Kyiv, Ukraine
