The programme of Scotland's main poetry festival StAnza is now available on-line here. Check it out, looks like a good line-up of readings and workshops including readings by Carol Ann Duffy and Simon Armitage and a masterclass by Douglas Dunn and, believe me, St. Andrews is a perfect setting for a poetry festival. The festival's not until the middle of March so plenty time to think about going!

ian rankin? siobhan redmond? eh? am i missing something? plus the burns thing - hasn't he got his own day? can't help feeling there isn't as much going on as the last one.

even so, i'm going to have to do some pretty sweet talking at work if i'm going to get to any of this

After a quick look I think it's the Saturday that I'll head down there. Maybe see you there!

I know what you mean swiss, Simon Armitage sure is a big draw though!

rachel, it would be great to meet up, maybe a blogger get-together in costa coffee if others are going!

Yes but don't let me drink any coffee. Terrifying results.
