StAnza Poetry Festival
March 4, 2015, 12:00 AM – March 8, 2015, 12:00 AM EST
StAnza’s mission is to bring to audiences the best of poets, and practitioners in related art forms worldwide. Over the years StAnza, now recognised as one of the leading poetry festivals in the UK and Europe, has featured a strong list of contemporary poets from within Scotland and also from across the UK and the rest of the world. The organisation has brought a range of major poets to the festival, commissioned art works from leading artists, featured both past and present Poet Laureates, and has brought to StAnza poets from over 40 countries worldwide.
Each festival focuses on two themes which weave around each other to give every StAnza its own unique flavour. The themes for StAnza 2015 will be Unfinished Business, and an Archipelago of Poetry.
Headline poets this year include Simon Armitage, Carolyn Forché, Bill Manhire, Glyn Maxwell, Sinéad Morrissey and Alice Notley.
