A Nomadic Exchange

By The Project Syndrome


"A Nomadic Exchange" is my second collection of poetry and it follows on in themes from the previous collection in a manner that evolves on the subjects explored in my first collection "Captivate Renaissance". Multiculturalism is a common concept in both collections but where my first collection looked on this from a very contained Irish perspective whereas this new collection attempts to perceive different cultural identities on a much larger scale and examines the integration of foreign influence on the European Union, the influence of the United States on global migration, inevitable threats of violence and prejudice, personal traumas of individuals doing their best to strive in society and the moral obligation to do the best we can to maintain and extend a comfortable standard of living to a new and culturally opposing global community. Does this mean compromising with alien cultures? Yes of course and it will cause a struggle in each individual to reconsider their sense of morality and embrace the other side of their subconscious in a healthy and accepting way in order to end all conflict and live in relative peace with their new neighbours for the good of mankind.

My name is Edmund Buckley. I am from Dublin where I was born and bred until I graduated from English Media & Cultural Studies in IADT when I took what I thought would be a three month work experience holiday to South America. Here I met my future wife and decided to stay for another four years. This is when I began writing about my experiences growing up in Ireland and when I returned to live in Ireland I had the majority of my material written for my first collection of poetry "Captivate Renaissance" and my debut novel "The Death of a Socialite". Both of these books were successfully funded on Fund it and sold using my website The Project Syndrome where I plan to sell an audio book e-book and take orders for posted printed copies of my current project "A Nomadic Exchange".

I am crowdfunding for this project as I see it as an excellent means of promotion and expanding my fan base before the launch of an artistic project. It has worked for me before on both occasions and I am very excited about the prospect of having a third successful campaign. I have no other source of funding and am relying entirely on your generosity to complete this third Fund it campaign to produce my collection.

The money raised will be used in three main areas. The most absorbing is the 100 printed copies of "A Nomadic Exchange" that will be posted out to potential buyers. I will also have an e-book professionally drafted and distributed for online sales. The third area is the production of an audio book that will be recorded and released online. I will also be promoting and distributing all three formats online.

The risks and challenges that I will face are again in the three main areas that my expenses will cover. I will need to generate a great buzz around the Fund it campaign to raise the money and then continue this momentum to promote the work that I have been doing for the past four years. I must do so by organizing a book launch and reaching out to a global audience with my website. 

I am extremely grateful to you for reading about my new project. I have worked passionately on this collection for a long time and cannot bring it to be realised the way I feel it deserves without public support. Thank you so very much for taking time to consider it.
