InPrint founder member Rupert Mallin, who is now working independently, has just published the first edition of textVISUAL, an online magazine of texts and visuals, occasionally overlapping and melting into each other.

Among other distinguished names featured are three members of InPrint – artist Mike Fenton and poets Lisa D'Onofrio and Tim Lenton – as well as work from Rupert himself.

He intends to publish textVISUAL three times a year, in June, October and February. He adds: "However, there will be an ‘organic’ element within each four-month period of ‘publication,’ so I hope each issue will be worth returning to between issues."

The magazine can be found here.

The Voicing Visions marquee at Welborne View image Poet Caroline Gilfillan emerges cautiously from the exhibition View image

The excellent Norwich 20 Group Voicing Visions exhibition, featuring the work of three InPrint poets plus former member Rupert Mallin, moved to Welborne, a village near Dereham in Norfolk, for the Arts Festival there. The festival is organised by Mike Webb, and this week took place on the weekend of June 13 and 14 – a stunning mixture of visual art, literature and music, plus clowns and horses. Caroline Gilfillan and Tim Lenton were there on the Saturday, as our picture proves. Music by Axol Loughrey, Nappertandy and Breton group Taillevent was all compelling, and the sun was out all day.
