Emma Briggs has built a loyal and ever-growing online audience for her writing over the past couple of years. Drawing on her experiences as a frontline anti-coal activist in Australia and sailing the seven seas for Greenpeace for fifteen years, Emma's stories, blogs and poetry aim to inspire others to take action against climate change: the most serious threat against life in the history of our planet. She has lost track of all the countries she has visited, but is now happy to stay at home in the seaside village of Byron Bay in New South Wales with her husband and visiting water dragons.
"Emma Briggs has written with passion, wisdom, frustration, turmoil and tenderness of her love for this abused planet and the life that depends on it. She's a warrior, skilled with words that match her bold battle for nature and justice. If I were still teaching English, I'd certainly take Emma's inspiring anthology into class." Jan Gillies"Thank you very much for giving me a copy of the collection of poems that Emma wrote. I was very moved by some and enjoyed reading the collection. I thought it was terrific, clear, thoughtful. The poem that I liked most is called 'In'. Congratulations for writing and putting together something very beautiful." Libby Bowen
