Breakfast at the Poetry Café: The Heights of Poetry

Friday 3 March, 10:00 - 11:00
The Byre Theatre, Abbey Street - Studio Theatre

With Mark Goodwin, Norman BissellÁsta Fanney Sigurðardóttir and Elodie Laügt

Enjoy your breakfast sunny side up at the festival’s Poetry Café. Our breakfast discussion events offer a relaxed start to the day with a group of poets and other festival participants exploring this year’s festival themes over coffee and pastries. Join Mark Goodwin, Norman Bissell and Elodie Laügt as they discuss how the mountainous landscapes of Scotland, as well as those further afield, have informed their poetry, and ask how poetry itself can climb the heights and what view is available, thanks to those who go further.

This event is live webcast and can be watched here.

Supported by Fisher & Donaldson and The List and in partnership with the Centre for Poetic Innovation. Supported by EventScotland and part of Scotland’s Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology 2017
