Students from the Department of English, History & Creative Writing have created a series of recordings, reading their favourite poems and passages from prose fiction as part of the ‘Creative Care’ project, set up by Dr James Byrne.
Care home staff and the wider community can listen to all of the recordings, either as a complete playlist on anchor.fm or individually.
The recordings are between five and ten minutes long and include famous authors of poetry and prose fiction, selected by our students.
A full list of the recordings and their corresponding authors can be found below.Visit the anchor.fm website to play all podcasts
