I have finally entered the poetry establishment! Having won last year's poetry slam, I have been invited back to St Andrews to provide lunchtime entertainment at StAnza - Scotland's International Poetry Festival. Details below.
Poetry Café: Seconds OutLunch & verse with Chris Young and Jane Overton
Thu 15 March | 1.00-1.45pm
The Byre Theatre, Abbey Street – Studio Theatre | £6.00/£4.00
StAnza Box Office, Byre Theatre: 01334 475000The first of this year’s lively Poetry Café events offers poetry sure to spice up the lunch included in the ticket price. Chris Young, familiar to many for his regular slam appearances at the Byre, was a worthy winner of the StAnza 2011 slam. He is joined in the Studio Theatre by one of his regular sparring partners from ‘Arguments and Nosebleeds’, an occasional collective founded by Jane Overton to bring the punch of performance poetry to mainstream audiences at the Edinburgh Fringe and beyond.
