Poetry Anthology
Songs of Revolution: Poems Against Oppression
Sunday Mornings at the River, 2024

Songs of Revolution

In this anthology, you'll find a gathering of poets who, through their unique lenses, capture the essence of our current era — a world marked by both struggle and hope. Their words not only reflect individual experiences but also resonate with universal themes of resilience and the pursuit of change.

Why This Collection Stands Out

  1. Diverse Viewpoints: The poets in "Songs of Revolution" come from various parts of the world, providing a rich mixture of cultural and personal narratives.
  2. Relevant Themes: The collection navigates through topics like conflict, peace, love, and loss, offering insights into the human experience in a world often riddled with challenges.
  3. Supporting a Cause: With this book, your purchase goes beyond literature. We're dedicating all royalties to Medical Aid for Palestinians, directly impacting lives where support is crucial.

Beyond Poetry: A Call for Engagement

"Songs of Revolution" invites readers to engage with the stories and experiences that shape our collective world. Each poem is an opportunity to understand different facets of global struggles and triumphs. This anthology serves as a reminder of the power of storytelling in fostering empathy and inspiring action.

Join us in this endeavour to explore the richness of human narratives across the globe. "Songs of Revolution" is more than an anthology; it's a window into the diverse stories that make up our world.

The Artist Cookbook

The Artist Cookbook Vol. 1

The Artist Cookbook Vol. 1 contains 58 recipes, from 52 artists collected from across the country. Along with the recipes artists submitted, came personal stories and unexpected glimpses into each of their lives. Some of these narratives have made their way into the book.

The recipes included are varied, yet respect an entry-level skillset, without compromising taste or aesthetics (we’re artists! this is important to us). When selecting the recipes I found that a few ingredients showed up time and again and became staples, so I would suggest stocking up on some of these items, including: Parmesan cheese, garlic, onions, parsley, eggplant, and of course, lemons.

More often than not, personal recipes come from a place of love and are attached to memories. I hope the ones I have selected for this book find a home alongside you. My wish is that you continue these traditions, and engage in the sharing and memory-making that meals provide us.

Bon appétit! --Carrie
