2017 elephant news

Incredible news about our anthology A Poetry of Elephants: we are transferring £800 to the elephant orphanage account. yes, £800 which is a fantastic amount and is all thanks to the kind people who publicised and promoted and, most importantly, bought the book. In addition, I heard of at least two extra donations direct to DSWT and two people who adopted orphan elephants. Yipee. Thanks VERY much one and all, not possible without you all. Just to remind any latecomers…. www.poetryofeleph       Thank you to the publisher who has also worked hard to send out all these orders.

Elephant poets will be reading their poems from the anthology at Teignmouth Poetry Festival on Sun, March  19th at 2.30pm.   You can see the programme here and book your tickets for readings. Workshop tickets are not on general sale till Feb 1st.

      This is wonderful, Becky, and I am so pleased to see the fantastic reviews of your books here too. If by any chance a space appears in your schedule for elephant readings at Teignmouth I could come now after all and would love to take part. The more I read about these large animals under threat the more grim the world seems. I very much admire you for doing something about it so effectively and raising awareness

      All very bes wishes for it Love Sarah x
