IFWG is very pleased to reveal the cover art and design of our upcoming chapbook, Infectious Hope: Poems of Hope and Resilience From the Pandemic. Silvia Cantón Rondoni has edited an amazing collection of poems by leading poets and writers from around the world, and has exhibited additional talent by actually creating the cover art to boot.

Infectious Hope is a call out for positivism and resilience during lockdown and isolation. Editor and poet Silvia Cantón Rondoni has curated a poetry anthology that includes a spectacular range of diverse poets from around the globe, and focuses on their insights and strength during the pandemic.

A poetic vaccination of the soul, and a reminder that we are in this together and are stronger than we know.This anthology contains the creativity of 47 poets, including luminaries Fiona Wright, Joe R. Landsdale, Isobelle Carmody, Roz Kaveney, and Linda D. Addison, as well as an introduction by Lee Murray.
