Do you ever wonder how urban literature is published? A few years ago a documentary called Behind Those Books came out. Written and produced by Kaven Brown the documentary highlights everything that is done to get street lit to your hood. Interviews from every facet of the publishing game is in this: writers, fans, activists, hip hop artists, editors and literary agents. A gumbo of talent at your disposal. I suggest you take a look at it if this genre is what you write in.
Not convinced yet? Here’s a few names you might recognize that were interviewed: Terry McMillan, Zane, Vickie Stringer, Queen Pen (where she been at anyway?), Michael Eric Dyson and plenty more. Visit http://thevbs.com to find out how to get the documentary.
Peace and luv!
