The first announcement of the outline programme and some of the participants in StAnza 2009 is now on the StAnza: Scotland’s International Poetry Festival website. I’ve been so excited about this Festival for months now, but of course I was sworn to secrecy!
The Homecoming, a Scottish Government project, will enable us to bring poets of Scottish origin back to Scotland, from all parts of the Caledonian diaspora. It’s going to be wonderful, so clear your diaries for 18-22 March 2009 and join us in St Andrews.
The observant among you will note we’re now including ‘International’ in our by-line. We’ve always been an international festival, so we thought we’d give it more emphasis in our new logo.
