The festival content on this page is currently not available. 

In our Poets at Home strand, new for our virtual festival year, accept the invitation by some acclaimed poets to see them at home and gain insight into their writing set-up. Today we’ll be visiting Caroline Bird, winner of the 2020 Forward Prize for Best Collection, who'll be talking about the faces she pulls when writing, and the difficulty of writing poetry in lockdown.

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.
