    What a great programme. I love Janice Galloway, so that will be a highlight. What is the photography exhibition about?And I’d like to hear Tess Gallagher, I read a good article on her recently.The walk sounds good too, I’m hooked since our renga one.So much to look forward to!

  2. Colin Will says:

    Thanks apprentice. I’ll find out more about the photography exhibition. You’ll notice we renamed the Dead Poets Sessions to become ‘Past and Present’. Chairing these sessions is always my bit of StAnza, and it means I have to read up on the Past poets beforehand, so I’m always learning something.

    It does look tremendous from over here – do you know that Apprentice has planted a little seed in my head about coming to have a look…

    You’d be very welcome Barbara.
