Hello everyone! My name is Solange, I created this group a while back, and have been away for a while, had 2 kids in the meantime, and I missed this place sooo much! So I'm back, love what is being said here. I would also like to offer my own blog on global women at http://keurawa.com, if anyone would like to stop by and offer a soul bite...I can't wait to finish reading everyone in this group.

Hi All,

Just wanted to inform you about a groundbreaking development occurring in the UK.

Fed up and frustrated with being marginalised and ignored by the mainstream publishing establishment, Black and Asian writers in the UK are moving to take their future into their own hands. Let’s all give them our support in whatever way we can. https://caribbeanbookblog.wordpress.com/2016/01/12/bare-lit-festiva...
