Welcome Ilya, so glad to have you in the group!

Feel free to share visual poetry, asemic writing, concrete poetry. Feel free to post related comments, ask questions, etc.

People in the group are pleased to trade visual poetry and asemic mail art.

Post finished work OR starters for collaborations.

Many of you know Dona Mayoora via asemics and vispo groups outside IUOMA. She has ventured into the mail art side by sending me an original piece for Asemic Front.

OMG Jayne, that is so cool! This is the way to go right now. I think it's good people pull starters from the group. But I will get you the snail mail soon!
