going the distance

Imagine if not-flying became a smart career move in the arts.

Instead of appearing in person on another continent, you preferred to record your interviews (as we've just done), or publish an exchange (as, inspiringly, the poets John Kinsella and Melanie Challenger have just done), and the fact that these now appeared online led to a wider audience getting to know your work.

Imagine, too, if people who were keen to reduce the impact of aviation went out of their way to support the best work by artists who had decided not to fly.

(Why wait? If you'd like to buy a book by John Kinsella click here; if you'd like to buy a book by Melanie Challenger click here.)
