Today I am proud to announce the mark of a new beginning. This is to be the first blog, the Grand Opening of the Starlight Review.
This photograph was taken by Steven Kenyon, it is the inspiration for the Starlight Review banner header. Both as a symbol of celebration and the contemplation of a capricious beginning.
This idea has burned in my soul for a while now, I thought it was time that I do something about it. The Starlight Review is here for the sole purpose of being an external outlet, further exposing fellow writers and artists in hopes that they would gain more recognition for the work they do. I realize that it will take time to build the Starlight Review into the vision I have, but I am willing, I’ll take it day by day to growing this incredible web-log. I will not only expose my talent in literature and art, but the talents of many, many others in the writing and arts community.
My intention is to give yet one more publishing outlet to those who struggle to be heard and seen for what they do. My hope is to have 80% of the Starlight Reviews publications come from freelance writers like myself. I have the opportunity every day to read and comment on a substantial amount of poetry and other writing. I read poetry sometimes that is so sharp, so profound that it calls to me for further recognition. I want to give that to these writers and to help foster them in their craft by demonstrating teaching examples, so that poets, writers both young and old can help further their wish to learn all they can and put it to good use.
In my off hours I work as the Site-Manager for another FCN Affiliation, The Flexwriters Cafe of Poetry found on myspace @ http://www.myspace.com/flexwriterscafe.
Tarringo T. Vaughn is the Founder of FlexWriters and President of the Social Network called FCN, found at http://www.flexwriterscreativenetwork.net – Other Affiliates of this network are “The Soldiers of Expression” at http://www.myspace.com/fcnsoe – and Vocal Inkorperated, a Blog Talk Radio Show at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/vocalink .

Thank you all for your inspiration.
