StAnza International Poetry Festival
 

Events: StAnza 2013

Past Poets

Past PoetsPiloted in 2005 as Dead Poets Sessions, these events have proved hugely popular. The Past & Present series generally features two poets (appearing in their own right elsewhere in the festival). Each talks about a nominated poet from the past, touching on their enthusiasm for the work and any personal connections, ending with a short reading. Poets of the past are also present in other ways during the festival: in performances, as the subject of talks, on film and as illustrations in workshops, and on Poetry Walks around St Andrews.
