The Afterword Page for this year’s festival has now gone live on the StAnza website with a gallery of photographs from the events, the venues and around town. Go to and click on Afterword. My thanks to all StAnza’s photographers, and to visitors who have allowed me to include some of their own photographs. If you attended the festival, this is a great opportunity to re-live personal highlights of those busy five days in March and the buzzing atmosphere in our festival hub at the Byre theatre, and if you missed it this year, now you have a chance to see what was happening, and spot who was there.

I’m also delighted that we have a recording of a whole event from this year’s festival available to listen to as an online podcast, arranged in partnership with our friends at the Scottish Poetry Library. Even better, it’s one of the Round Table events for which tickets are so limited, so if you didn’t get a ticket for this year’s Saturday morning Round Table, or didn’t even make the festival this year, now’s your chance to catch this event.

The Afterword Page also has links to posts by this year’s Bloggers in Residence, Fiona Moore and Susanne Arbuckle, and to a veritable feast of wonderful reviews and articles about StAnza, so settle down and tuck in.

More links on the Afterword Page offer a text version of Glyn Maxwell’s lecture this year as well as PDF versions of two of this year’s digital installations, and if you’re in St Andrews this summer, some of the poems panels on windows are still on show around town; and Dualism which has become a semi-permanent exhibition is still on show at the Fairmont hotel.
