ASP Literary Journal - Archive #3

Welcome to Issue #3 of ASP's Literary Journal. As usual there seems to be something working against us here to get our quarterly out. Spacing issues are becoming more prevalent, but not being savvy with the IT I'm not getting to resolve them. This is the project to overcome before Issue #4 can be delivered. Watch this space to see if I implode!

Issue #3 is a slightly smaller issue than previously, because of this. So well done to all our contributors for making the cut, which was harder than usual. An unexpected theme has developed through the fiction that has been presented to us this quarter. Can you spot it? 

Future projects which are in the offing, but only if I resolve the space issue, are to open up a comments area for discussions and comments on our contributors' work. Feedback is always essential, no matter what art form you follow. And, also, we have been thinking of instituting a tip jar of some kind. The money from this could be used for paying our contributors for their work - although I suspect my fellow editors may wish to see a free coffee from this as well. All to be considered. If you join our subscribers' list we can keep you up to date on whatever may transpire. 

Finally, Issue #4 will welcome the return of poetry submissions and we welcome to our fold, Rachel Carney, Guest Poetry editor.


So, dip in, stay for as long as you like, or have time for. Remember we are always here, if you only have time for one poem now, maybe another time you’ll have time for a longer stay. Enjoy, have fun and we hope the content remains with you long after you have left.
