FEATURED POET: ALESSA RAYDEAN SHAVER
who writes: ³at 24 years old, I have worked in the capacity of a Legal Secretary for 4 years. I am pursuing an associates degree for certification as a legal assistant. I began writing at age 12 as a means of self therapy. Today that gift has evolved into a tool of artistry with the goal of setting oneself before the mirror of the inner self, luring one away from the apathy of adulthood and back to the innocence of youth, exposing the world for it's harshness and praising it in moments of rare resplendence.²
