50th Anniversary celebration poetry

Would you say it with verse? Our English and Comparative Studies creative writing team has an international reputation for nurturing award-winning, published poets. In 2015 our staff, student and alumni poets recorded a year-long poetry cycle, sharing their own moving compositions every month to commemorate our history and our 50th year.
