Welcome to Shadowtrain, a gathering of poems and other writings, from the lyrical to the innovative, whatever happens to sting and stun the editor.

September-October, 2015
Shadowtrain 44

Martin Stannard refuses an offer from Ariel; Ann Matthews is torn between a boy band and a breeze block; Robert Okaji looks for the answer in the page's hollows; Tristan Moss stops to explore the curves; Tina Morris calls from the turmoil of a private place; Ian Humphreys watches from the wings; Collin Barber imagines the deck outside; Paul Green drinks vodka under ancient prayer mats; Rupert M Loydell lets it rain, lets it pour; Sarah Cave watches as the bottles float by.

Hop aboard while you can. This is the last Shadowtrain. My thanks to all those who have graced the carriages with their company over the last nine years. Two of the poets in Shadowtrain 44 also appeared in the first Shadowtrain back in March 2006. Shadowtrain is preserved in its entirety by the British Library here as part of its Literature Collection. I hope in the spring of 2016 to launch a new online journal.
