Pacific women and their challenges in coping with climate change have been highlighted in a new Commonwealth anthology.
A mix of new and established authors from the Caribbean, the Mediterranean, the Indian and Pacific Oceans contributed to the anthology.
Little Island co-owner, Tony Murrow, said it had been a collaborative effort with overseas publishers but the book highlights work from both well-known authors as well as new writers.
"It's been brought together by the Commonwealth Foundation and based in London and they ran a programme last year where they reached out to African communities and produced a collection of short stories, poems and so what we have here is a collection from our island communities in the Caribbean, the Mediterranean, Malta, the Indian ocean and the Pacific ocean, so the largest geographic area of the world."
