7pm online, tuesday 2nd 

                                  MOURNING OUR PLANET?



On the Mexican Day of the Dead, Dove Tales presents an evening of poetry and music asking the question, how many wars before we’re mourning our planet?

We had hoped to be returning to our friends at the Scottish Writers' Centre at the CCA in Glasgow, where we've held many events over the years, but unfortunately that hasn't been possible, so the event will take place online.

As Glasgow hosts the COP26 UN Climate Change Conference there are profound questions to be asked of governments, including our own, who balance their economies through arms sales.

We're calling for open submissions to the event, work that looks at climate change from the angle of war and the devastation it causes to our planet.

Please send poems (up to 50 lines); prose up to maximum 1200 words) music (up to 4 minutes) to Jean Rafferty:
