About the anthology:

The planet is warming and we are responsible.

For writers from India, Wales and Scotland Climate change is the most serious global issue.

In this anthology compiled by charity Sustainable Wales Cymru Gynaliadwy they describe its effects on their home areas.

With the help of the past, they look forward. For some the future might be marvellous, for others terrifying.

But sombre or surreal

For all of them

That future is here.

More Info:

Gorwelion is Welsh for ‘horizons’. It consists of five original contributions from Indian authors, two from Scotland, and nine from Wales.

Sustainable Wales produced this anthology of new writings with Parthian Books, retailing at £9.00. https://www.parthianbooks.com/…/gorwelion-shared-horizons

It is produced because of the generosity of our supporters, Merryn Hutchings and Christine Eynon. There is an excellent chance of a second volume of original writings being produced.
