CANOPY 3 – An Anthology of Writing for the Urban Tree Festival 2022

This anthology is published to coincide with the Urban Tree Festival in May 2022. The pieces included were selected from over 100+ entries to a competition run in Spring 2022. Entrants were asked to write about “Healing Trees” as poems or stories in 250 words or fewer.

The theme of “Healing Trees” was set by our previous winners: Chris Cuninghame for poetry and Sarah Wheeler for prose. They chose the theme as they felt it was pertinent to these challenging times and wanted entrants to reveal “the power of trees to heal themselves and us, to contribute to well-being and to sustain ecosystems.”

They also volunteered to be judges in this year’s competition, joined on the poetry side by Anita Roy, writer, editor and environmentalist, and on the prose side by N.G. Bristow, a screen writer, director and visual artist, rooted at Goldsmiths University of London, where he runs the MA in Directing Fiction.

The “Potcake Chapbook” series is named for the dogs of the Bahamas and the Caribbean – strays that live off the burnt scrapings of cooking pots. The poems in the series are a mixed bunch – but the potcake of our logo wears a bow tie to show that he and all the poems are formal. These poems are memorable in part because they rhyme and scan, as all truly memorable poetry does. We subscribe to the use of form, no matter how formless the times in which we live.
