Launch of Dark Mountain: Issue 25

Join us for a celebration of our Spring 2024 anthology

Do join us for an online event to celebrate the launch of our spring issue!

Dark Mountain: Issue 25 is an anthology of non-fiction, fiction, poetry, interviews and artwork inspired by the struggle for land rights, and by the living land itself.

This book gathers voices from around the world – from Cameroon to Mexico, from Portugal to Palestine, from Wales to the Democratic Republic of the Congo, from Singapore to the leafy lanes of the Oxfordshire stockbroker-belt. Some pieces take the form of dispatches about navigating difficult territories, while others take a longer view of history and deep time. The language of rights can be anthropocentric, couched in terms of ‘who owns what’ – but what happens when we flip such assumptions on their heads? Does the land belong to us, or do we belong to the land? What happens when we expand our perception beyond the human?

As with all Dark Mountain books, awareness of the land’s aliveness underpins everything. Whatever the ground on which you stand, we hope the words and artwork in this issue offer different ways to navigate its changes.

The book will be published on 17th April. Join us on the 18th at 7.30pm (BST) for an introduction from the editors, readings from contributors and a glimpse of the book’s artwork.

Hope to see you there!

Tickets are free but you’ll need to book a place via Eventbrite
