17th May is International Day against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia, and to celebrate, we are revealing the cover of upcoming poetry collection, A Voice Coming from Then by Jeremy Dixon, which is published at the end of August.
cover design by Rachel Marsh Semple Press
This is Jeremy’s first full collection, after his pamphlet In Retail a couple of year’s back.
A Voice Coming from Then deals honestly and straightforwardly with homophobic bullying and a youthful suicide attempt, through the presence of Spring-Heeled Jack, a demon of Victorian urban myth. It is illustrated with Jeremy’s collages of family photographs, and also contains statistics and much needed resources.
I don’t mind admitting I cried over the manuscript.
A Voice Coming from Then will also be available as an Audiobook!
Here’s one of the poems as a taster.
