Poems Aloud: University Library Poetry Recitation Competition

The Byre Theatre, Abbey Street - Studio Theatre
FREE

Listen as judges choose the best recitation or performance of a published poem

The Poetry Out Loud project in the USA has made an impact on YouTube and demonstrated the power of poetry well delivered. The University of St Andrews Library's own version, Poems Aloud, has become something of a tradition at StAnza and now returns for a sixth year in 2019. Come, listen and be impressed as students from the University of St Andrews compete in the finale of Poems Aloud for a cash prize for the best recitation or performance of a poem by a poet appearing at StAnza 2019 in St Andrews. The event is being held in the Byre Theatre for the first time this year and is open to the public.

St Andrews students interested in taking part should email libpoemsaloud@st-andrews.ac.uk.

Presented in partnership with the University of St Andrews Library
