Changing Tides Ed. Michelle Rosquillo & Jaynie Royal; and The Coral Reef Foundation

'Submerging', originally published in Overland Literary Journal 214, has found its fourth home in the American anthology Changing Tides Ed. Michelle Rosquillo & Jaynie Royal (the previous two anthology homes include The Best Australian Stories 2014 Ed. Amanda Lohrey, and The Sky Falls Down: An Anthology of Loss Ed. Terry Whitebeach & Gina Mercer).

The anthology, which concentrates on climate change and rising tides, offers a delectable range of genre including memoir, short stories (like my own), essays and poetry, from authors, scientists, poets and researchers.

To see more about the group of compassionate contributors, I've attached the link:

I'm all for paying the writer, but as I've already been professionally paid twice for the story, and donated the money from another publication, it was a thrill to see that all net benefits from this anthology will go towards the Coral Restoration Foundation (CRF), which is the world's largest non-profit marine organisation. During a climate of global warming this group has achieved real and visible outcomes; it's a world leader in terms of its coral breeding programme. CRF have a huge impact on the restoration of coral reefs, especially in Florida. While CRF is restoring health to reefs, it is also making great inroads in education too.
