An anthology of nature writing by disabled writers and authors living with chronic illness.
Moving Mountains will, for the first time, collate the relationship to the more-than-human world from the perspective of those of us who cannot ignore the bodies that we live in.
Commissioned artists and writers include poets, songwriters and essayists: Isobel Anderson, Kerri Andrews, Polly Atkin, Khairani Barokka, Victoria Bennett, Cat Chong, Eli Clare, Dawn Cole, Lorna Crabbe, Kate Davis, Carol Donaldson, Alec Finlay, Jamie Hale, Jane Hartshorn, Hannah Hodgson, Rowan Jaines, Sally Huband, Louise Kenward, Louisa Adjoa Parker, Marcus Sedgwick, Alice Tarbuck and Nic Wilson.
In addition to compiling an anthology of new nature writing, Moving Mountains will run a series of workshops through 2022. Please check back to see when these will be running and to find links to book your place. They will be free and open to all.
