Two charity anthologies

I'm delighted to have work included in these two charity anthologies, both of which came through my letterbox in the last couple of days!

Changing Tides is an anthology of poetry, stories and essays about the oceans, raising money for Coral Restoration Foundation, which works in Florida and beyond to restore coral reefs, to educate others on the importance of our oceans, and to use science to further coral research and coral reef monitoring techniques. I'm delighted that my poem Slick is included in this anthology. I have so far, only skim read the contents, but this particularly impressed me:

It is the way our songs became so crude,
censored by the shrieking


from Eubalaena Glacialis by D'Orr and Deja

The Changing Tides anthology costs $14.95, with all net revenues going to The Coral Restoration Foundation. You can purchase it here.

Made at Home is an anthology of creative projects made during lockdown. It is raising funds for CRISIS the homelessness charity. It includes a wide range of projects, from models made from biscuits, through poetry, sewing projects and cocktail recipes, all accompanied by colour photos and some of which include instructions. It's a real dose of inspiration! Each participant also shares their feelings about the importance of home during lockdown. I'm delighted to have an upcycling project included! The project was crowd funded here.

Made at Home can be used in fact as a book of creative prompts! I've just discovered an online list of creative prompts, specifically put together by poet Alec Findlay, for  these pandemic times here.
