The Anthropocene Hymnal: Publication Date announced!

I am excited to announce that the anthology The Anthropocene Hymnal will be published on 24 July 2021, and the Kindle e-book is now available for pre-order from Amazon.

It has been quite a journey and a steep learning curve for me to get to this point, but I am happy to say that I was encouraged along my journey by the quality of the poetry and artwork, and the strength of the message carried within the pages of this book.

The cover art is a collage, ‘New World’ by Kerfe Roig, with whose work you may well be familiar. My special thanks to Kerfe: to me, this collage portrays perfectly the theme of the anthology, and I am sure you will agree it looks fantastic!

Purchasing Options

The paperback will be available through Amazon initially (with the possibility of expanded distribution at a later date). The Kindle e-book will be available from Amazon, but I will also be selling my own version of the e-book right here on this site. Payment for downloads purchased in this way will be via donation to WWF.

I am not allowed to market the anthology as a charity book as I have no official affiliation with WWF, but I will be donating all of the royalties I receive to them. I have set up a fundraising page, so you can track donations and see just how The Anthropocene Hymnal is raising money to help the planet whilst raising awareness of the existential issues we face.

Please stay tuned for updates on fundraising, sales outlets and contributors, which I will publish in the run-up to the launch date of 24 July.

Thank you to everyone who has contributed to, or shown an interest in, this project. I very much look forward to bringing it to fruition!
