Poetry Advent window 16

Hello Poetry Lovers

I have really been looking forward to this window. We have opened number 16 to Trainspotters by Greg Freeman. A neat and moving collection published by Indigo Dreams in 2015.

Tender pieces, such as in The 21.53 – an interaction between strangers on a train and the poignant A Job on the Railways, a moving account of the poet’s father. These very personal accounts are neither sentimental nor mawkish. The reader can also warm to the reminiscent The Clackety-Clack and the human situation of The Late Shift.

My personal favourite however is Dance On, so poignant, absurd and engulfing with its bitter-sweetness.

We’re awaiting that next collection, Greg.

Most of you will know Greg Freeman co-runs Write Out Loud Woking, now on Zoom. Do check out the site


There’s also a great interview with Greg on

Thanks for tuning in, Poetry Lovers. Tune in tomorrow for window 16……
