Greg Tate Launches Print On Demand Magazine Coon Bidness

Wire contributor Greg Tate is launching a print on demand magazine called Coon Bidness with musician LaTasha N Nevada Diggs. The magazine is named after the Julius Hemphill album of the same name, and describes itself as "an edgy African American visual arts and literature journal containing artwork, essays, fiction and poetry".

Issue one, The Critical Ass Issue, promises to "hang out dirty laundry and celebrate a renegade African cosmopolite spirit in a well-woven series of surreal short stories, Facebook threads, poems and scintillating visuals." More info on MagCloud, where you can order a print copy of the mag for $21.55 or a digital version for $10.
