Greenwood Press was created by Bob Woodroofe in 1993 to publish his trilogy of poetry collections based on life in the Vale of Evesham in Worcestershire.

Bob’s poems have appeared in many magazines and are often performed locally.

He is inspired by the wonders of nature, the countryside and its ancient mysteries.

Since being joined by Sue Johnson in 1998 they have published her ’Writer’s Toolkit’ booklets, a joint poetry collection ‘Tales of Trees’ and Bob’s ‘Something Stirred’.

Sue is a poet, short story writer and novelist, and a ‘Writing Magazine’ creative writing tutor. She also runs her own writing workshops and gives talks.

2017 saw their second joint poetry collection ‘Journey’ about their travels together, Sue’s ‘Curious Women’ collection and Bob’s hardback poetry book ‘Pick of the Crop’.

2018 brought a new venture with a CD of Poems and songs ‘A Town like Evesham’ jointly recorded with local singer songwriter Colin Pitts.

In 2019, to celebrate 25 years publishing Bob has issued new impressions of all his work, available direct from us or in paperback on Amazon and as e books on Kindle.


i am a town

i’m asparagus in the springtime

and plums from a roadside stall

i’m the grammar of the locals

a dialect with a drawl
