The Fisherpoets Anthology: Anchored in Deep Water, is a seven-book set that is nearing completion. Over 35 poets from the USA, Canada and Japan are represented, with seven interviews of the fishermen and women engaged in commercial fishing along the coasts of the North American continent.
Chelsea Stephen and Patrick Dixon edited and designed the books, which are organized around six themes: Family, Work, Community, Gender, Risk, and Politics.
The project is currently waiting on funding from a Kickstarter campaign to go to press.
