Verses Typhoon Yolanda: A storm of Filipino poets is finally out.
This anthology, which I am part of, was edited by Eileen Tabios–a US-based Filipino writer. All profits from the book will be donated to relief organizations working with Yolanda survivors in the Philippines.
From the book’s blurb:
This is a book about a destructive typhoon named Yolanda, or Haiyan, which caused massive damage to the Philippines in November, 2013. This is a sprawling book of poems in English, Filipino, Cebuano, Waray, Hiligaynon, Bisaya. This is a book by poets who teach, poets who study, a poet who drives a tricycle for a living, poets who work for NGOs, poets who are school children. This is a book by 133 Filipino poets who live in the Philippines, the United States, Britain, the Netherlands, South Africa, elsewhere. What is diaspora but the aftermath of storm?
If you like reading poetry and help others at the same time, this book might just be for you. You can find it HERE.
