The Hashtag Poet in Residence
Clive Birnie, the poet behind HashtagPoetry# will be in residence during the festival making and posting new poems from Twitter streams relevant to the festival themes or from the Twitter streams of festival attendees – poets and audience alike. If you post to twitter using the hashtag #StAnza16 your tweets may find their way into poems! Or tweet Clive @clivebirnie and he will produce poems based on your twitter stream. Clive will also be encouraging festival attendees to make their own Hashtag Poems by handing out postcard-sized prints that can be redacted using Hashtag Poetry kits complete with stickers and marker pens. All poems produced will be scanned and posted to Instagram during the festival.
