And this Global Warming, A'r Cynhesu Byd-Eang Hwn

ed. by Awel Aman Tawe 

64pp Roynetree Press £3 (+£1.10 P&P)

 

 

 
We have launched our second poetry anthology on climate change! The competition was judged by Carol Ann Duffy and Elin ap Hywel, and received nearly 700 entries from all over the world. This anthology presents a selection of the best.
 

 

Our world is in the throes of change. While facts and figures, targets and quotas are argued over, how do we find words to express our angers, our fears, our hopes about climate change? How do we imagine our future? In this anthology forty poets put their thoughts on the page - from anger at politicians, to the poignant memory of ice. From forest fires to recycled words; from an estate agent’s spec on the Earth, to the personality of thunder. We all have different ways of telling climate change. This is a selection of the best.
