A bit about Al Fredericksson

My middle name is Alfred, and my dad’s name was Frederick. Hence the name I used when I started to write poetry for children. It means that when I use my poems with the children in the junior school where I teach, they can relate to me as the poet rather than as their teacher. Anyway, it seems to work, so I stuck with it!

I have lots of interests, and no doubt others will find a way onto this site, especially after I retire. But for now, photography and poetry is where I’m starting. The header photographs which appear at random on each page were all taken on the River Trent close to where I live, a few miles north of Nottingham, England.
