In their own words:

"This issue is all about ‘expression’ and we are looking at
this idea through music and poetry. As our guest editor
Joseph Coehlo tells us, ‘poetry and music translate the soul’.
We look at how different cultures as well as different species
use music and words to express who they are and what they
believe in. We have features about beat boxing, an orchestra
made of vegetables, a profile of Fela Kuti, two wonderful
short stories, all our favourite comic strips, a look at the
mystery of birdsong as well as the art of haiku and some
wonderful poems from readers and published poets. This
issue is an invitation from SCOOP to find your voice and,
as Joseph suggests, ‘maybe after reading this issue you’ll
pick up a pen, clap your hands, strum an instrument or
sing your words to the sky.’"
