Ella Frears asks who is driving the poem

Watch the event here.

In our Poets at Home strand, new for our virtual festival, accept the invitation by a number of poets to gain insight into their writing set-up. Today we'll be visiting poet Ella Frears, whose debut collection was shortlisted for the Forward Prize for Best First Collection and the T. S. Eliot Prize for Poetry. Ella has created an evocative and associative film for StAnza, reflecting on her writing process.

Books by festival poets are available here, with profits going to St Andrews bookshop J & G Innes.



Participants: Ella Frears
