“Letters to Our Home” is now published!
This 50-page book was conceived during the Australian bushfire crisis during the summer of 2019/2020. It was inspired by the northern hemisphere publication, “Letters to the Earth”. Like that publication, we hope creative responses to the growing climate, biodiversity and environmental crises will help us come to terms with the situation we collectively face, nurture our spirits and inspire us to take, and to demand, action.
The contributors to this collection are connected in some way to WA, and they vary from school-age children to parents, workers and retired people, published poets and newcomers. They write from their hearts and are inspired by their passion to see art as a selfless act of giving, and as activism.
This varied and enjoyable journey around Western Australia’s unique precious places and explores how we as humans live within them. It includes images, poetry and prose.
I’m so pleased to be included in this publication.
All proceeds from the sale of “Letters to Our Home” will be split between the Environmental Defenders Office (EDO) [ https://www.edo.org.au/ ] and the WA Forest Alliance (WAFA) [ https://waforestalliance.org/ and/or https://forestsforlife.org.au/about-us/ ]
