StAnza: Scotland’s International Poetry Festival gets poetry on the move


StAnza: Scotland’s International Poetry Festival is combining poetry with transport with a set of unique poetry panels. The largest of these will depict the iconic Forth Bridge and a poetic tribute to what was once the unending task of painting it. This panel with its very Scottish symbol is in keeping with the festival theme, The Image.

The festival takes place from 14-18 March in St Andrews, (the town is a recent winner of a Creative Place Award), and is part of the Year of Creative Scotland’s cultural activities. The panels will all be on display during and around the festival period.
