If ever there was a time to support charities that are committed to preserving the natural world, it's now! The Story's Not Over is a small but important part of that.

Carmen Kilner 24th September 2020

John, I am so glad that you told me about this. I am very happy to support our wonderful wildlife in this way and wish you every success.I look forward to reading the book.

Lucy Walker 21st September 2020

I got so much from this project: a creative boost, wonderful editing advice, inspiration from reading so many beautiful centenas - and a new-found love for beetles.

Katie Steingold 17th September 2020

What a fantastic cause - congratulations to the wonderful 26ers who have put their names & talents to this project. I very much look forward to reading the book!

This approach engages the emotions of those who understand these species and feel the heartache of their steady demise. I hope it will have an impact on others too. Even if not, it stands as a testament that there WERE some humans who cared, but were powerless to help.

Our love of nature is deeply rooted in poetry so, at a time when wildlife is under so much threat, its right that the poetic arts should be at the forefront of raising the alarm.

I so enjoyed being part of this project and am looking forward to being able to browse through this book and enjoy meetings with other writers celebrating their chosen species.
