‘Whalebone & Crabshell‘, a fable that Zedeck wrote in response to the Rohingya refugee crisis in 2015 is reprinted in two different anthologies, along with the illustrations I drew for it.
The first is Dark Mountain: Issue 9, an anthology of uncivilised writing and art. Co-founded by Paul Kingsnorth and Dougald Hine in the UK, The Dark Mountain Project ‘is a network of writers, artists and thinkers who have stopped believing the stories our civilisation tells itself. We see that the world is entering an age of ecological collapse, material contraction and social and political unravelling, and we want our cultural responses to reflect this reality rather than denying it.’
Dark Mountain anthologies are published twice a year. This issue was themed ‘The Humbling’.
The second is Everything About Us: Readings from Readings 3, a selection of writing from Readings@Seksan – a monthly event featuring Malaysian writers, founded by Bernice Chauly and now organized by Sharon Bakar.
