Facing the Fire invites us to cast aside our fear and face the fires raging in our minds - be it the fire of family dysfunction, past trauma, conflict or memories. This collection of short stories, poems and essays faces the fire head-on through brave and inspiring reflections on the past and hopes for the future.
'Ghost Bones takes as its inspiration the idea of taxonomy: the scientific system of classification of organic beings. In each of their individual chapters, the poets explore what this means to them: woman, man, non-binary.
The bridge between spoken word and published poetry is made of books such as this, is made of paper and sound. We hope it finds you.’
‘Every one of the authors published in this anthology started with a blank page and the motivation to share their thoughts. The skill within which this is performed is evident in the array of worlds encountered in these pages, worlds that will thrill, provoke and entertain you.’
—Ginni Manning— Writer & Playwright
