Description


Art about the climate crisis that calls for justice and systemic change while raising funds to help tackle the problem.

We are in a climate emergency. The polar bears are starving, Australia is burning. Climate anxiety - like sea levels - is rising to unprecedented levels. In response to this, poet and editor Kathryn Mockler created a website where writers and artists could post creative works that respond to this crisis. Watch Your Head curates the best poems, stories, essays, and images related to our environmental crisis. The work is ranty, mourning, desperate, in-your-face, hopeful, healing, transformative, and radical. It calls out hypocrisy and injustice to inspire you to do whatever you can - volunteer for a climate justice organization, support land and water defenders, call out the media - and it'll make you feel less alone in your worry.

The anthology editors include Madhur Anand, Stephen Collis, Jennifer Dorner, Catherine Graham, Elena Johnson, Canisia Lubrin, Kim Mannix, June Pak, Sina Queyras, Shazia Hafiz Ramji, Rasiqra Revulva, Yusuf Saadi, Sanchari Sur, and Jacqueline Valencia. Confirmed contributors include Jordan Abel, Rita Wong, Rae Armantrout, Kaie Kellough, CAConrad, Waubgeshig Rice, Shelley Niro, Evie Shockley, Nicole Brossard.

Proceeds will go to climate charities.
