Kickstarter campaign launched for new anthology of women’s adventure writing, poetry and art

Tuesday, 10th April 2018

Vertebrate Publishing has launched a Kickstarter campaign in a bid to build awareness about a new anthology of women’s adventure writing, poetry and art titled Waymaking.

The book will be released this October in a timely publication that marks the centenary year of women’s suffrage and ongoing discussions about gender issues in the media, and will feature contributions from over fifty writers and artists, including award-winning author Bernadette McDonald, world-leading climber Hazel Findlay, and adventurers Sarah Outen and Anna McNuff. 

While 2018 has seen a surge in books written by women for women hitting the shops, one area still largely underrepresented by female voices is the outdoor adventure genre. As the UK’s leading publisher of outdoor adventure titles, Vertebrate Publishing aims to address this imbalance with Waymaking.

All royalties from the sales of Waymaking will be split equally between the John Muir Trust and Rape Crisis, helping to conserve our wild places and raise awareness for the problem of sexual violence in our society and others. Funding raised via Kickstarter will support production and marketing costs.
