An interview with urban poet Benjamin Zephaniah, a look at alternative theatre, and a spread on urban art - just a few highlights of Issue 15 of Aesthetica, the York-based arts and contemporary writing magazine. Launched in 2003 by former York St John College students Cherie Federico and Dale Donley, the magazine - which aims to "highlight the most innovative and exciting art throughout the UK" - has developed a national readership.

Editor Cherie has just won the Young Business Entrepreneur of the Year award in The Press Business Awards 2006 for her success in piloting the magazine from York beginnings to a national profile.
