‘Please Hear What I’m Not Saying’ is a poetry anthology featuring 116 poets, all writing about mental health. The profits from this book go to UK Charity, Mind.
Editor Isabelle Kenyon compiled the anthology following an international submission call out. Contributors were enthused by a common goal to raise money for the charity, Mind.
With poems focusing on mental health from a wide range of experiences (covering topics such as grief, trauma, anxiety, poverty, Alzheimer’s and therapy), the book aims to continue the worldwide conversation about mental health.
Isabelle comments: ‘As an editor, I have not been afraid to shy away from the ugly or the abstract, but I believe that the anthology as a whole is a journey – with each section the perspective changes. I hope that the end of the book reflects the ‘light at the end of the tunnel’ for mental health and that the outcome of these last sections express positivity and hope.’’
