I am not a poet, I don't read huge amounts of poetry and I'm not up to date with the latest poets in vogue. Neither do I dislike poetry, there is plenty of poetry that I enjoy and I don't even mind admitting that I admire Eminem as a lyrical genius.
So what does a poetry festival have to offer the likes of me and the plenty of you out there that fall into my camp? Does a poetry festival have something to offer everyone? Well in a fortnight's time I will be finding out as I head to StAnza as their blogger in residence.
StAnza is Scotland's International Poetry Festival, which this year will be celebrating it's 18th anniversary in St Andrews. In my experience the great thing about any festival is there is always something for everyone and as their blogger in residence I will be attending a wide variety of events and reporting back with my
recommendations to help you plan your own visit depending on your interests.
I will be also be exploring other things to do in St Andrews for those wanting to combine a stay in the area with some festival shows.
StAnza runs from 4th to the 8th of March 2015 and you can find out about the many events and shows by looking up their online program which you can find here. You can also follow social media updates (including my own) by searching on #StAnza15.
Have you been to StAnza or are you planning to go? As always I would love to hear your tips and advice and of course the best places to visit in St Andrews,
