'Crocus', January 2013

The Crocus is a hardy winter flower, and its sort sheds colour upon the garden of the world even in spite of the harsh seasons it endures. The recession we endure as young men and women, and as fresh graduates, is a very harsh environment indeed. It is our Winter, and that which we must endure. And in spite of it we, as artists, continue to shed colour upon the world where we can. In our way we are Croci.

Whilst smaller in scope than our previous issue - the need to find gainful employment proving too much for some contributors - we hope Crocus showcases the same wonderful range of poetry, prose, and journalism as our lovely writers exhibited in our first issue. 

We hope you enjoy it.
