Hoping, one day soon, to catch up on all that needs to be blogged about – details about the forthcoming launch of my new poetry collection, Where the Air is Rarefied, as well as news about some very wonderful funding that I’ve been lucky enough to be awarded…
For now, though, a plea from Paul Kingsnorth and Dougald Hine, who, as co-editors and initiators of the Dark Mountain Project, are seeking to raise money to cover the costs of publishing Dark Mountain 2, the second volume of ‘uncivilised’ writing ‘for an age of global disruption’.
You can get a sneak preview of the volume’s contents here. I’m thrilled to have some poetry included, especially as it will be appearing alongside work by, and/or conversations with, some of my current favourite writers and thinkers, such as Jay Griffiths and David Abram.
Paul and Dougald are requesting people to pre-order copies of the book to cover its printing and design costs. If you like what you see in the preview of the list of contents, and/or you feel committed to the Dark Mountain Project’s principles, please do consider pre-ordering – and help to spread the word.
