John Freeman’s What Possessed Me has been reviewed by D A Prince in London Grip magazine:

“What impresses in this collection is Freeman’s constant desire to share his eagerness for life, other writers and the delights of places – all the things that ‘possess’ him – with readers. This is not abstruse or cryptically coded poetry but a collection lit with humour and openness.”

On 11 January John read from the collection at the Murenger House poetry evening in Newport, alongside Paul Chambers. Thanks to the event’s resident photographer John Briggs for sharing some photos of the night.
