A brand new collection of Bill’s poetry has been published by Cinnamon Press. Its title is Ringers.

"Bill Greenwell's singular imagination provides a poetic vision of the touching power of what lies just beyond what we choose to call the real. Dramatic, vivid and surprising, these are poems whose narratives haunt the reader long after the book is closed."

Jane Draycott
