A: Fabrice Poussin, Keith Moul and Wayne Russell's art works were amongst those published recently and they are beautiful works of art I enjoyed publishing.
Above all, I enjoy publishing the poems and flash fictions of all communicators league submitters.

A: Jaap Blonk is an amazing composer/performer of words and sounds. Mary Kuryla any day for stories. I will continue to read A Confederacy of Dunces forever, amen.
