There has never been a more critical moment in this planet’s history. Ecosystems and species stand upon the precipice of extinction and await human action.
Spurred by the urgency of the situation, Fly on the Wall Press has teamed up with WWF, The Climate Coalition, Dr Michelle Cain (Oxford University), former Derbyshire Poet Laureate, Helen Mort, and wildlife photographer, Emily Gellard, to create an anthology for our future.
“Planet in Peril” combines beautiful photography of endangered species and delicate ecosystems, with poetry designed to increase public awareness of the complex issues surrounding climate change, alongside leading climate change research.
Release date: September 7th 2019
Fundraising total as of March 22nd 2020: £169.15

Festivals and around the world
We have been lucky enough to visit primary and secondary schools, giving talks and creating poetry from the book. Contributors around the world have hosted ecopoetry open mics and book launches across the USA and Australia.
We have been part of the Isle of Man's Manx Litfest and later this year will take part in an ecopoetry reading from contributors in the anthology at Cheltenham Poetry Festival.
Contributors and myself are actively involved in performance, creating art and sharing this to educate others and raise awareness of what needs to be done to tackle global warming. Do get in touch to book a performance.
