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 at Tentsmuir Nature Reserve near St Andrews and led by poet, wild swimmer and forager Beth McDonaugh. Tentsmuir is perfect for a walk at any time of year, offering exciting opportunities to see birds and wildlife. In March, the Tentsmuir colours are starting to change from the yellows and browns of winter to the fresh greens of spring growth. We would recommend stout walking shoes or boots, and do come dressed against the cold and any rain and ready for some rough terrain.
More information on how to get to Tentsmuir, and the facilities there, can be found on the Tentsmuir page of the NatureScot 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. Please also read StAnza's position on Covid-19 safety and compliance.
As we are unable to invite audiences to travel any distance to St Andrews in March, you’ll also have the option to join Beth online on a virtual poetry walk around Tentsmuir, with photos or videos, poems and more to transport you to Fife.
