The StAnza Camarade saw new collaborations written by poets both attending and participating in the festival, following collaborative workshop led by Enemies project founder, S.J. Fowler. The StAnza festival offered the opportunity for anyone to take part and all the works produced did not exist three hours prior to the Camarade reading, which took place amidst the festival's bookfair in the Town Hall in St. Andrews.
