It was such a great pleasure to have noteworthy poet Khadijah Ibrahiim write the foreword for 1, and the writer/contributors themselves see the sense in it all. This was motivation enough to give it a go.

This is the Leeds based volume 1 team.. They've teamed up to promote themselves as well as Lyrically Justified. The immense scope of talent speaks for itself and all involved are making their mark on their own terms.
You'll notice that the group is racially and culturally diverse, and this tradition will continue.
Volume 2 will bring another impressive set of poets that we need to know, boosting the collective overall, taking it to another level.
