Zestemag (is this a wordpress blog I see before me…?)

Zest is an emag created by the Australian Poetry Centre which contains news and information about the Centre and related events. It’s great to see the APC building a stronger electronic footprint and interesting (esp. for me as  wordpress user) to see this platform being used to create a magazine style format.

They say>>
