Poetry Centre Stage
From 1 April the StAnza 2021 festival content on this page is no longer available.
Our final reading of the festival brings together two unflinching, immediate and evocative poets. Valzhyna Mort writes in English and Belarusian, and has received international awards for her work. Her latest collection, Music for the Dead and Resurrected, came out in 2020 and explores the gaps and silences inherent in history and memory. Reading alongside her is Colette Bryce, whose work has been shortlisted for the Costa and Forward prizes. Her new collection, The M Pages, was published by Picador in 2020. Built around an elegiac sequence for M, this arresting and moving collection is testament to Colette’s position as one of Ireland’s leading contemporary poets.
Just return to this webpage to view the event, which will be captioned and remain available to watch until 31 March.
Books by festival poets are available here, with profits going to St Andrews bookshop J & G Innes.
