One possible schedule, mine, which needs to be pruned for time to go to Otmar's book store, eat, etc. See previous thread for travel, hotels, and general information. I will be staying at the Hazelbank at 20 Scores.

All descriptions are from the festival site. The big name poets generally read at night, 8.00 pm. The lecture is usually very interesting--not the blah-blah-blah we get at the US poetry festivals I have attended. The Dead Poet series is wonderful.
