Jeremy Luke Hill


JEREMY LUKE HILL is the publisher at Vocamus Press and the Managing Director at Friends of Vocamus Press.

He teaches literature, make jams and preserves, reads continental philosophy, uses open source software, bakes bread, watches documentary film, grows trees from seed, among other things. He likes his coffee fairly traded, home roasted, strongly brewed, and black. A very abbreviated list of his personal canon would include, in no particular order, Doestoevsky’s The Idiot, Golding’s The Spire, Shakespeare’s King Lear, Marion’s God Without Being, Kafka’s The Trial, Rushdie’s Midnight’s Children, Saramago’s All the Names, Derrida’s The Gift of Death, Lewis’ Til We Have Faces, McCarthy’s Suttree, Lowry’s Under the Volcano, Gardner’s Nickel Mountain, Bolano’s 2666, and Dillard’s Pilgrim at Tinker Creek. He is cynical about spring, but romantic about autumn. He believes that every book can benefit from a glass of scotch and a pipe. None of these things describe him in ways that he finds satisfactory.

He has written a children’s fantasy book called Lindy, a collection of poetry, short prose and photography called Island Pieces, a chapbook of poetry called These My Streets, and an ongoing series of poetry broadsheets called Conversations with Viral Media. He has also edited an edition of G. K. Chesterton’s Napoleon of Notting Hill. His criticism and poetry have appeared in places like The Bull Calf, CV2, Free Fall, The Goose, The Rusty Toque, The Town Crier, and The Windsor Review.
