It's as good as a Christmas present. Nicole Bell and Michael Grieve, the delightful hosts of Haver, a new arts/poetry podcast from Fife have featured our Double Bill event last month for Book Week Scotland in their very first broadcasts and very nice things they say about it too. So organise a cup of tea, a left over mince meat pie, put your feet up and enjoy.
With the programme now online for next March, time to whet your appetite by some podcasts from previous festivals. Here's Rab Wilson reading his poem, On the Marriage of Dear Carr, from last March's Bridging the Continental Divide installation. We'll also have a few copies of the chapbook for sale in March so look out for them.
To mark the the 150th anniversary of the birth of William Butler Yeats, at StAnza 2015 the SPL invited a number of poets at the festival to read and reflect on their favourite Yeats poem, including Kei Miller, Ryan Van Winkle, Carolyn Forché, Jim Carruth, Alexander Hutchison, Anne Crowe.
This is a recording of Alice Notley’s Round Table In Conversation event at StAnza 2015 on Saturday 7 March when she was speaking to JL Williams.
