    .....This upstart for black authors is nice and the owners, Gwen and Willie Richardson, are decent people. In fact, Gwen is a Facebook friend. But for some reason, I've not position myself with that network yet. Though I love the collective idea of assembling black authors into a market venue, my personal opinion of the Festival is characteristic of a meat market. Eventually, I probably will contact Gwen and let her know I'm ready to sign up:). In the mean time, here's a link to shesfab's concept of a Black Literary magazine that has attracted my attention. Take a look:
