This recently released anthology, Rising Tides, edited by Catriona Sandilands, contains more than forty pieces of climate change fiction, creative non-fiction, memoir, and poetry.
I’m proud that my work, “Five Ways to Talk about Twisted Oak Moss”, is among pieces that “emphasize the need for intimate stories and thoughtful attention. These stories parallel the critical issues facing the planet, and imagine equitable responses for all Canadians, moving beyond denial and apocalypse and toward shared meaning and action.”
Rising Tides…(contains)…words of sorrow, words of loss, words of concern and fear. But also, words of connection to trees, to ice, to nature. We need these words to apprehend the changes coming upon us. I commend Catriona Sandilands for bringing together this diverse group of people that honoured climate change through these words.
