Winds of Change: Short Stories About Our Climate
October 23, Vancouver, BC - Vancouver-based Moon Willow Press Announces Winds of Change: Short Stories about Our Climate.
"About time some serious writers and artists engaged with the biggest issue of our time-maybe all time. These stories show engagement fully underway!" -Bill McKibben, founder 350.org
Winds of Change, an anthology, is a diverse collection of 18 insightful, witty, and emotional short stories about climate change. The selected stories are the result of a short story contest run by Eco-fiction.com in the summer of 2014.
In collaboration with 100,000 Poets (Artists/Authors) for Change, Eco-fiction.com engaged authors from Vancouver, BC, and other places around the world, to create speculative fiction about a harsh reality: our planet at-risk. With a foreword by Michael Rothenberg, Winds of Change also includes several poems by Stephen Siperstein and Carolyn Welch.
The short stories include the winner Robert Sassor's "First Light" and honorable mentions by authors John Atcheson, Rachel May, JL Morin, Anneliese Schultz, and Craig Spence. Other authors include Gabriella Brand, Paul Collins, Conor Corderoy, M.E. Cooper, Charlene D'Avanzo, Michael Donoghue, JoeAnn Hart, Janis Hindman, Clara Hume, Stephan Malone, Christopher Rutenber, and Keith Wilkinson.
Moon Willow Press is an independent publisher committed to helping sustain forests while celebrating the written word. The press gives back to the environment by working with organizations such as Eco-Libris and Trees, Water People to plant trees in ecologically and economically depressed areas. These tree-planting programs protect natural ecosystems and allow local people to play an active role in keeping their local forests healthy.
Winds of Change is on sale in print or Kindle at Amazon. Retailers may also order the book via Ingram.
15% of book sales are being donated to 350.org.
