StAnza's Poetry Breakfasts streaming online

Those unable to make it to the St Andrews-based poetry festival can watch online

The StAnza Poetry Festival 2013 is currently in full swing, with wordsmiths Robin Roberston, John Hegley and Gillian Clarke joining Scotland's Poet Laureate Liz Lochhead in St Andrews.

This weekend the festival, which runs until Sun 10 Mar, will be broadcasting morning Poetry Breakfasts. Ravenous poetry lovers who are unable to attend will be able to snack on these broadcasts on StAnza's USTREAM channel, and will even be able to put forward questions to the panellists through posts on the page.

Saturday morning's discussion will see painter and printmaker Carry Akroyd join with the University of Glasgow's David Borthwick and poets Mandy Haggith and Andrew Forster on the subject of how poetry engages with nature.

On Sunday, the issues and art of translating poetry will be debated by Arc Publication's publisher Angela Jarman and poets Erín Moure, Eurig Salisbury and award-winning Singapore-born wordsmith Alvin Pang in their breakfast session.

The discussion panels will be available for viewing at 10-11am this Saturday and Sunday on StAnza's USTREAM channel.

If you would like to pose a question to the panellists during one of the Breakfasts, you can post it on the right hand side of the video view window on USTREAM. You can also send the panellists questions via Twitter to @stanzapoetry and join the conversation at #StAnza13 and #StAnza13webcast.
