Worcester College

We've been delighted by the recent number of Worcester Old Members who have been publishing books on a huge range of subjects, and so we thought you might like to hear a bit more from some of Worcester's writers - about their inspiration, their writing processes, and any memories of Worcester that have helped them in their literary careers. These episodes are the first in our new podcast series, and the brief Q&As are only a few minutes long, so perfect to watch during a coffee break. They may even inspire you to pick up a pen yourself!
