ArLiJo Features Joseph Grant, Consuelo Hernandez, & John S. Williams
Fiction writer Joseph Grant, poet Consuelo Hernandez, & poet John S. Williams are featured on ArLiJo.com.
These authors are quite good but I would like to particularly point out Consuelo Hernandez\’s poetry which is focused on aspects of India and the Middle East. These poems intrigue and instruct at the same time.
Please visit ArLiJo.com which I edit.
