Caroline Carver - resident poet at Plymouth University
Caroline Carver took up her post as poet in residence at Plymouth University, Marine Sciences Department, on Monday March 18. She was invited to join it after the success of her commissioned poetry, which is on many of the walls of the new building as well as on the boulder outside. Caroline’s words were inscribed by the Cardozo Kindersley Workshop in Cambridge.
The building was officially opened by the Duke of Edinburgh on Tuesday October 30. When he had unveiled the boulder he turned to the Vice-Principal and asked “Who wrote these beautiful words?”
