I received this very interesting asemic object poem (I'm calling it) from Chaya-Malkah Frank (Columbus, Ohio, USA). Chaya-Malkah is a visual poet known to many of you, and she contributed to the original Asemic Front. Many thanks to Chaya!

Carl Baker - thx for messages. Will reply asap.

What has the potential to be an important book on asemic writing will be released this coming January 1 (2020): This is Peter Schwenger's book from the University of Minnesota Press:

He contacted me some time ago about our own Nancy Bell Scott and "eco-asemics," a concept launched in this group. So I assume we can read about NBS and probably other asemicists and visual poets we know and admire. 

Check it out !

12.14.19 Dare De Villo S., Ms Jayne Barket Lyons could force a "carbon footprint" into poetry.  Habitually this Asemic Writing Group is a treat to view. Best to you. Richard C.
