Viral Verses - Art in Exceptional Time

Post by Linstead »

In collaboration with the Department of English and Related Studies, the University of York Management School have secured a small grant to publish a book of art and poetry in support of NHS Charities Together. We have around 50 poets including Ian McMillan, Mike Harding and Ralph McTell and more than 20 artists including Graham Ibbeson, Terry Brookes, Heath Common and Tony Heald. Almost every poem is unpublished and specially written for this volume. We've raised enough to make sure that we WILL publish but we would like to expand the page numbers to ensure that we can include all the poets who have submitted fantastic work, and secure a commercial distribution deal for a full year rather than 6 months whilst still giving a good return to the NHS.

Any donation would help - we have just over £600 to go. If you've donated already thank you SO much. If you can't contribute, we'd appreciate it if you could circulate this appeal as widely as possible. We're so close now. We have a cover too...

Thanks for reading our request and stay safe
