Pascale Petit
Don Paterson
Lemn Sissay

We’ll send you a set of poems (two per poet) to choose from. Or you can make your own separate choice from their works.

A panel of judges will rate the best delivery and pick a winner during the live recital in the University Library on March 4 at 3.30pm.

If you have questions or are interested in entering, drop us a line: libpoemsaloud@st-andrews.ac.uk
