Amos Trust’s second book of poetry, prose, creative writing and reflection is now available. ‘Seeds of Hope: More Thoughts and Reflections from Amos Trust’, has contributions from Zena Kazeme, Arundhati Roy, Ben Okri, Cornel West, Angela Davis, Robert Cohen, Maya Angelou and our partner from Bethlehem, Abdelfattah Abusrour.
In March 2020, as coronavirus forced the world into lockdown, we began to post daily ‘Seeds of Hope’ on our Facebook and Instagram pages. Over time those seeds have germinated and grown into this book.
Many of the thoughts, reflections and poems here started life in those posts. But other ideas were sown too, and we have included stories from our partners, playlists of the songs that have been the soundtrack to our lives in and out of lockdown and simple reflective acts called Words of Hope, like the one we used every day on 2017’s Just Walk to Jerusalem.
Broken down into chapters including Her, Home, Planet, Solidarity and Walk — ‘Seeds of Hope’ has something for everyone. We hope that as you read this book you will feel inspired, angered, determined and hopeful.
‘Seeds of Hope: More Thoughts and Reflections from Amos Trust’ was edited by Harvey Jessop and Chris Rose and designed by Nick Welsh at Amos Trust.
