After a history of eleven years and after raising £3407.40 benefitting a total of 83 separate charities through its quarterly magazines and publications, earth love poetry magazine has had to close its pages for good.  Like many organisations, the magazine is the victim of rising costs.  But to celebrate the magazine and all its poets, earth love has published an anthology of poems selected from past editions of the magazine.  Visit the 'editor's climb' page to find out how intrepid editor, Tracy Patrick, raised money for the farewell earth love anthology.  To purchase your copy, click on 'anthology-2013' above. 

All proceeds from the anthology will go towards conservation charities

anthology 2013

What better way to say goodbye than with a final anthology featuring a selection of work from the past six years of the magazine.  The first earth love anthology in 2006 covered the initial five years and included a poem from the late Edwin Morgan who for many years was Glasgow's much-love Poet Laureate (see 'publications').

Poems for the second and final anthology showcase the range and diversity of voices that have featured in earth love, including contributions from prize-winning Gaelic poet Angus Peter Campbell, Paisley punk poet, Graham Fulton, Hungarian Jewish poet, Eszter Forrai, poems in Farsi from Iranian poet Mahmoud Farzan, plus published authors Rory Waterman, Sandra Bunting, the late great Geoff Stevens, Tawona Sithole, A C Clarke, and intriguingly, B P Shell, and many more...

May I take this opportunity to thank all of the poets who have contributed to earth love over the years, and all the supporters and subscribers who made editing this magazine an absolute joy.  They helped earth love achieve what it set out to do: providing a forum for poets to write about nature and the environment in a modern context, while benefitting countless conservation efforts in the process.  This new anthology will add to that legacy.  Keep checking these pages to find out how much has been raised and which charities have benefitted.  Spread some earth love.  Shine on! 


Love and light,
