A Poetry of Elephants

Delighted to announce that this little book celebrating and mourning elephants has at last gone to the printers  and we await the proof copy with bated breath.  This is entirely thanks to the mystery publisher and to  Karen Dennison who designed the cover from artwork by Tara Pandey.  Also thanks to the thirty-one poets who have contributed to this project and all proceeds will be donated to the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Kenya who rescue and look after orphan elephants until they are ready to return to the wild.  More news when we have a website from which copies can be ordered. Watch this space for readings, too.  Any help anyone can offer in terms of publicity or people to contact will be much appreciated: we are amateurs with limited time and need a group response so that poetry can help the baby elephants.
