Winged: New Writing on Beesis a modern literary anthology that collects essays, poetry, and fiction speaking to this moment in time, as honeybees reach an apex of peril. In this collection, 36 new and established writers explore the timeless but uncertain relationship between humans and honeybees. Winged is a considered artistic response to the increasing fragility of our food supply, the astounding pollinators we depend upon, and the inspiration they have provided to artists and writers for thousands of years. 

All proceeds from the sale of Winged are donated to pollinator conservation efforts: The Xerces Society for Invertebrate Protection, Bees for Development, and Spikenard Farm Honey Bee Sanctuary. 

Contributors include: Frank Sherlock, Leni Zumas, CA Conrad, Claire Preston, Paulann Petersen, Craig Goodworth, Malachi Black, Jeanine Hathaway, Charles Goodrich, Rachel Cochran, Susan Kelly-Dewitt, Sarah Marshall, Karina Borowicz, Adrienne Flagg, Lynn Otto, Kiandra Jimenez, Susanna Childress, Lois Leveen, John Beer, Kate Gray, Jeanne Wagner, Jennifer Moore, Lois P. Jones, George Venn, Elizabeth Lawson, Lea Banks, Annette Fisch, Marina Callahan, John Davis, Marty Williams, Kristin Berger, Dena Rash Guzman, Maxine Silverman, Jill McKenna Reed, Melissa Reeser Poulin.

“Winged: New Writing on Bees is at once a love song to bees everywhere and a response to their plight. As the honeybee loses its vitality sampling pesticide-saturated plants and suffers inner hive manipulations, these writers, poets and backyard beekeepers pay tribute to them in a myriad of ways. For anyone who has ever appreciated the sight of these winged beauties landing with infinite grace on a flower, this collection will lift your spirits and give you hope that we will awaken in time to their gifts and assist them as they navigate the complexities of this world.”

-Joanne Lauck, author of The Voice of the Infinite in the Small: Re-visioning the Insect- Human Connection
