We are inviting people from all over the world to contribute poems to a new book on climate change. The top 20 will be selected for publication and will receive a small honorarium as thanks.

You can use any form or style of poetry, the only restriction is that the poem must be 40 lines or fewer. All entries from any language and any age range are welcome. Please submit your proposed climate change poem using this form:


There will also be a foreword from an IPCC Working Group lead and a world-famous poet. Please could you share this with all your networks, as we are hoping for a good response.

All proceeds from the book will go to the Environmental Justice Foundation.

For more details, contact Sam Illingworth, Manchester Metropolitan University (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).
