Poetry walks have been a favourite event at StAnza for many years. We hope to be able to offer some socially distanced poetry walks as part of our festival in March, including this walk along a section of the Fife Coastal Path near St Andrews and led by the poet Helen Boden. Helen has a special interest in writing outdoors, and writing and wellbeing.
The Fife Coastal Path stretches for 117 miles from the Firth of Forth to the Firth of Tay. Our walk will start at the West Sands in St Andrews and walk along the beach towards the River Eden. We would recommend stout walking shoes or boots, and do come dressed against the cold and any rain and prepared for some rough terrain. Meet downstairs outside the British Golf Museum.
More information on this route is available at the Fife Coastal Path website. If you live in or near St Andrews, come back to this page nearer the time to find out if live outdoor walks are possible then.
As we are unable to invite audiences to travel any distance to St Andrews in March, you’ll also have the option to join Helen online on a virtual poetry walk along the coastal path, with photos or videos, poems and more to transport you to Fife.
