A helping hand

Of Words and Water 2014 has now been available for four months and we’re closing in on our target of raising £500 for WaterAid.

Meanwhile, next year’s anthology is already brewing – the loose theme being “a helping hand.” George Gould from Hotmugdesign has designed the cover for the 2015 anthology. And if you are interested in contributing, please fill out the contact form.



A status update

It’s been almost four months since Of Words and Water was published. Let’s take a look at one of the important numbers connected with this publication. No, not downloads, even though they are very interesting to follow. No, what I’m talking about are the donations for WaterAid – the reason why we put together this anthology in the first place. Well, one of the main reasons anyway (another being our love for words).
After almost four months we’ve actually managed to raise half of our target of £500 with a total of 22 donations.

To all of you who have donated to the cause and downloaded the anthology we would like to say a huge thank you! Thank you for backing us up, for reading our words, and helping to improve access to clean water in some of the world’s poorest communities by donating to our cause – all the money goes straight to WaterAid.

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again; No donation is too small, no thought insignificant. Please keep donating and let’s reach that target of £500…!!

The River

Ooh, this video gave me the chills – the I absolutely love it-chills. Words by Peggy Seeger, video by Richard Clabaugh and read by Laurel Clabaugh. Check it out:

The WAW Group owe Richard Clabaugh a huge thank you for making this video – he has composed the music, shot all the video footage, recorded his daughter, Laurel, reading the poem, and so much more. We are in awe of his skills and the time he’s put into this project. This is actually just the first of two Of Words and Water videos, so check back for more soon…!
