WordAid – Poems for a Good Cause

Written by The Reader, 29th November 2011

WordAid is a collective of published poets working together to raise funds for charity.  Their latest project is an anthology of poetry titled 'Not Only The Dark - 160 poems about survival', in aid of Shelterbox, an organisation who provide emergency shelter and lifesaving supplies for people affected by disasters around the world.

This  vibrant anthology explores the theme of survival, with poems about war, weather, growing ill and growing old as well as about cities and landscapes, art and music, trees and turtles and the many things that add richness to our lives.

Featuring many established poets such as Patience Agbabi, David Harsent, and TRO supporter Rebecca Goss, the anthology also introduces the work of exciting new writers. It is  due to be launched on 6th December with an event at Keynes College, University of Kent.
