Hello, Poetry People!


We're excited to announce the Launch of COLOUR THEORY! A multicoloured anthology of poetry by University of Worcester’s student-led Poetry Society + Friends!


The anthology is the first of its kind - and a debut for UoW Poetry Society. We're super excited to release this fabulous work - and we're incredibly grateful to all our brilliant contributors!


Colour Theory celebrates the diversity of human perception and emotion in response to colour. The book contains over 100 poems, by 46 authors (Worcester students, graduates, and our non-student friends!) ALL inspired by 5 special hues…
