ASP Literary Journal - Archive #6

Welcome to Issue #6 of ASP's Literary Journal. After nearly a year on hiatus, you would think I would have been able to streamline the site to perfection - sadly not the case, as I am not very knowledgeable in the IT skills needed for such efficiency. That said we do now have a shop - please visit it and, even better, please buy something from it. If only so I can see if all the links and connections work. If they don't, contact me via the Contact Form and politely inform me that I'm an idiot!

Issue #6's highlight is our Featured Artists' John Wilder & Phil Wood who got a clear thumbs up from the whole editorial team. But that does not detract from the rest of the contributors, all of whom have presented excellent work for them to be accepted for publication.

Enough chat - time to read - 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.
