StAnza: Afterword 2008

StAnza 2008 Afterword The lights go out on StAnza 2008
Photo: Tsead Bruinja and Saskia Stehouwer

StAnza 2008 has now drawn to a close but, apart from the many vivid images lingering in the mind from the wealth of readings and performances that made up the festival, there are visual images for all to enjoy.

We hope the pictures in the photo galleries will evoke some of the highs of Stanza 2008 and bring back memories for audience members old and new.  StAnza would like to thank our volunteer photographers Eugene Theodore and Al Buntin.
