Thank you so much to everyone who has taken part and submitted work to this anthology. It is a project close to my heart, as my aim is to raise awareness of the joint crises of climate change and biodiversity loss that we are facing as a human race, and as part of the vast family of life on this planet.
I would now ask for your patience while I review submissions and make my final decision regarding which poems will appear in the anthology. I value all submissions, regardless of which poems I choose for my final selection. Simply showing you care means so very much, and in this way we begin to raise awareness and start to have important conversations about how we can make the changes we need in order to survive in the Anthropocene.
Stay tuned for further exciting announcements, including the cover reveal, author bios and a sneak preview of some of the poems to be included…
In the meantime, I recommend watching the Netflix documentary Seaspiracy, for a shocking exposé of the wanton destruction of our oceans. We are facing a global problem which needs a global solution. So let’s continue to raise awareness and join our voices in song.
Good luck with your choice! Good recommendation too. “Cowspiracy” is also a tough documentary but worth watching!
Yes, I have heard of this. I already don’t eat meat so will it just upset me? Or teach me something new?
It is a harsh film, as it reflects the reality of the animal industry, as well as its devastating impacts on the environment, health and of course the animals. I’m sure it will teach you something new and reaffirm your position as a vegetarian.
Thank you for the recommendation 😊
I haven’t submitted anything but I’m eager to know the results. I wish I shall submit next time.
Thank you for taking an interest in the project 😊
You are welcome. Have a good day Ingrid.🙂🤜
Good Luck with this exciting and well worthwhile project Ingrid.

Thank you Lia 🙏 🌎❤️
Such a tribute to you for taking on such a task which is truly a labor of love Ingrid! 👏👏👏
This movie should be a required watching even though it’s tough to watch. It’s vital to our existence! 💖
Yes, we need to start looking around us and questioning everything we buy! I did see a dolphin the other day: maybe he was sending a message 🐬
Good thoughts!!! Yes we do!! 💖
Good Luck dear Ingrid with this exciting and well worthwhile project. It’s indeed a nice step and is the need of the day.
I almost missed this brilliant project, but I’m glad you caught me in time, Ingrid!
