Spoke: New Queer Voices
Spoke: New Queer Voices brings together some of the very best young writers working today. United yet multiple, together but disparate, the writers herein encompass a range of genres and styles. Inside you'll find essays, poems, plays, a song, a map and a comic. Themes include love, dance, drag, social justice, family and social media.
Spoke puts the words and voices of a new generation of LGBT writers alongside each other to create a dialogue and to capture a turning point.
Collected here are many of the best entries to the Young Enigma Awards along with a selection of specially commissioned writers.
