IFWG is immensely proud to announce the world-wide release of our fourth instalment in our chapbook series, Infectious Hope: Poems of Hope and Resilience From The Pandemic, edited by Silvia Cantón Rondoni. “IFWG didn’t hesitate to take on this project,” stated Gerry Huntman, Managing Director, “as COVID-19 permeated every aspect of all of our lives over the last few years – it made sense to contribute to some form of positive message through our publishing house. Silvia’s editing effort was immense and she was a pocket dynamo in terms of attracting some of the best poets in the world, and not just from the horror genre that she has close ties with. We are still gobsmacked by the table of contents.”
The inspiring cover art and design was also rendered by Silvia Cantón Rondoni.
Infectious Hope: Poems of Hope and Resilience From the Pandemic 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.
