Talk and Dinner

Hannah Lavery: Dinner Date at StAnza Poetry Festival


A new strand for StAnza Poetry Festival 2022: come along and explore some key questions related to this year’s festival ‘theme’ with the Festival Director and festival poets, fuelled by an evening snack to keep the blood sugar levels raised! This event features three Scottish poets who have experimented with different forms: Hannah Lavery, who is as well-known for her scriptwriting as for poetry; Billy Letford who is currently toying with novel writing; and Georgi Gill, whose writing deliberately sets out to exist between genres. Join us in a discussion of the comparative importance of narrative and storytelling in different literary forms.

Tickets: £5 – £9


Hannah Lavery is an award-winning poet, playwright, and Edinburgh’s new Makar. In March 2022, Hannah’s debut collection, Blood Salt Spring, will be published by Polygon.
