We are always interested in interviews with North Carolina writers and literary criticism that introduces a new NC writer or that reintroduces a forgotten NC writer (the latter would be eligible for the John Ehle Prize, if selected for publication). One-act plays (by a NC playwright or set in NC) may also be submitted in this category. (Creative nonfiction, fiction, and poetry must be submitted through our competitions. For more information, see NCLR's full submission guidelines.)
