SHELF is an artistic publishing platform that was created by Ashley Scantlebury.
After running my own young writer's magazine, I saw just how interested people were in expressing themselves and having their voices heard.
SHELF seeks to give artists the chance to have their work recognised and appreciated.
I want to offer people with creative passions the chance to talk to the world.
Tackling social issues through the medium of art and literary finesse is something that we have seen greatly benefits even the most discerning of souls.
So artists, writers, take this oppotunity to sit upon the SHELF.
“If you ask me what I came to do in this world, I, an artist, will answer you: I am here to live out loud.”
