Changing Tides / Regal House Publishing

My mailbox has certainly delivered some joy this week! Changing Tides has published. I am grateful to Editor Jaynie Royal for including a short stack of my writings in this collection: “So This Is Starrigavin,” “Up the Coast from the Astrolabe,” and “Ache.” They are in good company and I look forward to reading this in its entirety.

From the website:

The poems, essays, and personal reflections in Changing Tides detail moving accounts of the human impact on our ocean environment and demonstrate the heightened need for individual, community, and global action in addressing what has become a collective crisis for life on this blue planet.

All net revenues from the sale of this anthology are donated to the Coral Restoration Foundation™, a 501 3 (c) non-profit organization that was founded in 2007 in response to the widespread loss of the dominant coral species on the Florida Reef Tract. Coral Restoration Foundation™ (CRF) now manages the largest coral restoration program in the world. The Coral Restoration Foundation™ works to support the reefs’ natural recovery processes through the large-scale cultivation, outplanting, and monitoring of genetically diverse, reef-building corals. Their mission is to restore coral reefs, to educate others on the importance of our oceans, and to use science to further coral research and coral reef monitoring techniques.
