This is a reminder of a project I am working on for which I need your help:

I was thinking over the weekend, as I wrote my own eulogy for the SIN Series – Death piece I did, that there is a lack of such a book. I have found one book which appears to be 80 poems written by the same person, but no anthology…

The objective is to collect a number of poems, somewhere up to 120, and compile them under topics such as:

  • meaning of life
  • god
  • death
  • morality
  • science
  • the Bible

and so on. I have a few to get started with. And now it is a case of scouring some poetic corners of the world, and asking if you have submissions. The project is obviously in the earliest of stages, but there you go, it’s out there.

If you have a submission or know someone who might for a poem broadly atheistic in nature, then send it to:

onusbooks@outlook.com

The working title is “Filling the Void: A Selection of Atheist and Humanist Poetry.

Please spread the word! This is really important. I need you to ask your skeptical friends, post this on Twitter and Facebook, Reddit and whatnot. I am about halfway through so still need a good number of submissions. There is a great and eclectic mix so far – it’s coming on a treat.
