A Taste Of StAnza at Dundee University - Stewart Conn & Dawn Wood 15th February

 
Warm up for the StAnza Poetry Festival in March by coming to see two of the poets who will grace StAnza 2011 at the latest Dundee Cultural Quarter event.

Stewart Conn is one of Scotland's best-loved poets, and a former Makar for Edinburgh. Stewart has published ten poetry collections over forty years, and Dundee is delighted to welcome Stewart to give his first reading in the city for some time.

Dawn Wood is from Omagh in Northern Ireland, but now lives in Perthshire. Her first collection 'Quarry' (Templar Press) was shortlisted for the Aldeburgh Prize for the best first collection of 2009.

Both are captivating readers - please don't miss this opportunity to see them, and to hear about StAnza 2011 from Director Eleanor Livingstone.
This hour-long event will take place at the Dundee Rep Theatre on Tuesday 15th February from 6pm. Admission is free but we ask for a small donation of £2 to cover costs.
