A smorgasbord of eco-poetry published by Nine Arches Press.

The planet is in crisis, climate anxiety looms large, and zero-waste grocery shopping and a vegan diet feel like mere drops in the ocean. Poetry isn't the sole antidote, but it is a powerful site of protest and collective imagining. Join us as a trio of poets and thinkers shepherd us through radical new futures and offer insightful and botanical examinations of humanity and migration.

Rishi Dastidar's Neptune's Projects is a post-apocalyptic jig for the climate crisis era which gives bold consideration to the stark choices we face.

L Kiew's More Than Weeds explores the language of migration, drawing deeply on botanical and natural detail in a study of borders & belonging, place & people.

Caleb Parkin's This Fruiting Body sparks with neon visuals, engaged in the joyful, urgent, imagining of alternative realities and new futures.
