For Rhino in a Shrinking World

I just received my copy of this stunning international anthology of eco-poetry, For Rhino in a Shrinking World.

This spectacular large format book (8 ¼” x 10 ½”) was initiated and edited by South African poet Harry Owen (former Poet Laureate of Cheshire, England), and beautifully illustrated inside and out by South African artist Sally Scott.

The collection is filled with ecologically themed poetry from more than 100 poets from around the world. I am honoured to have two poems of my own (“Spawn” and “Mimotype”) included in this important project.

Order a copy from the Poet’s Printery here: http://www.poetsprintery.co.za/index.php/shop?limitstart=0

All proceeds from the sale of the book go (via the Chipembere Rhino Foundation, www.chipembere.org), to support the work of fighting poaching and protecting Africa’s gravely threatened natural heritage.
