Events - Festival 2020

Taking Poetry to New Places

Thursday 7 March, 12:30 - 12:50
J & G Innes Ltd, Booksellers, South Street - Upstairs Gallery

Drop by in your lunchbreak for some poetry

This year at StAnza, we’re offering short, free readings over lunchtime during the week. Brighten up your day by enjoying some poetry during your lunchbreak, or swing by between your other festival events. Today we’ll be hearing from Anne Connolly, a widely published Irish poet and two-time finalist at the Scottish slam championships. Anne understands poetry as a form of music which must be heard as well as seen – so make sure you don’t miss this lyrical lunchtime with her!

Anne will also be doing a few pop up poetry slots around the festival today, so keep your eyes (and ears) peeled for her!

Supported by the Scottish Book Trust's Live Literature scheme

Participants: Anne Connolly
