Forthcoming, Spring 2014: VERSES TYPHOON YOLANDA

NOTE:  Typhoon Yolanda and Typhoon Haiyan are the same typhoon.  Yolanda is how it’s referred to in the Philippines, Haiyan is how it’s referred to everywhere else.  Do not ask for further explanation, as even self finds it a tad confusing.

Here are excerpts from the press release published a few days ago by the anthology’s editor, Eileen Tabios:

In response to Yolanda’s devastation, Filipino poets in the homeland and the diaspora rallied to create a fundraising anthology entitled Verses Typhoon Yolanda:  A Storm of Filipino Poets.  Edited by poet Eileen R. Tabios, the anthology of 132 poems is released by Meritage Press, and will soon be available on-line through the press’s Lulu account.  All of the book’s profits will be donated to those helping the survivors of Yolanda.  Recipients will be listed on the book’s website as they become known.

Meritage Press will work with fundraising organizations or individuals wishing to raise funds for Yolanda’s survivors.  Specifically, Meritage Press is willing to send books at cost to fundraisers who then can sell the books at their individual retail price of $20 each.

For more information, contact Eileen R. Tabios at MeritagePress@aol.com
