On 14 November StAnza will stage a brand-new poetry event, a one-day virtual poetry festival, using the latest digital technology to link up poets from around the world. Poets from as far apart as Mumbai and Sacramento and many points in-between reading at live events in their own countries will be linked by satellite to the audience in St Andrews, and broadcast worldwide via an online webcast.

The event in The Byre Theatre will be free and unticketed, and people are encouraged to drop in. However if you plan to travel any distance to St Andrews for this, do contact us in advance on and we shall do what we can to reserve a place for you.

We hope that this initiative will attract not only poetry enthusiasts but anyone who is interested in the arts engaging with new technology. For the audience in St Andrews, StAnza will provide a day of innovative and exciting poetry. For press enquiries, contact

During the live event, tune in to the webcast here. If demand is high, we would ask you please to be patient and try again later.
