Whales in these poems take readers through the muddiness of humanisation but they do not sabotage the perceptions of pure wilderness.

Why Fund this Project

There is a great apathy and virtually no support for the South-Asian poets from the establishments in the publishing world, media or the British and American magazines. The Word Masala Foundation seeks to show that it is not due to the lack of talent. You will not only be supporting this ethos with extra funds raised but also will help conservation projects because 10% of its net fundraising will be distributed to whale conservation projects. With the two books offer, which we highly recommend, you will help further. If we do raise more, than please be assured the Foundation will fund competitions and awards.

‘There They Blow’

The request is based on committing 100 copies as a pre-sale at £8 X2 to include our second collection by the award-winning emerging poet and novelist Mona Dash+ £2PP=£1600+£200 P&P
After the costs, including royalties, all net funds will go to fund future activities by our NON-PROFIT Foundation, so we will remain in your debt for your support. Your extra generous support, if forthcoming, would mean that it will allow us a production of  a new Whale poetry film.
