SYMPOETRY: Scottish Poetry Library Poetry Symposium

SYMPOETRY brings together world-class poets and literary thinkers to address a question of vital importance to the state of poetry today, and you are an essential voice in that conversation. 

This year’s question is, Poetry: Who’s speaking?  Who’s listening?

One ticket buys you a whole poetry-packed weekend of readings, debate and conversation, as well as delicious food and drink.

Special Guests include:

Don Paterson   Thomas Lux   Fiona Sampson 
Sasha Dugdale    Tim Dee   Maciej Woźniak and more! 

In partnership with the University of Edinburgh and the Scottish Review of Books.
