We welcome interviews, essays, and literary criticism for the 2020 special feature section on North Carolina writers living outside of North Carolina.

Fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction must be submitted through our competitions, NOT in this category. Those submission categories will be available for submission when each reading period is open. For more information, see NCLR's full submission guidelines.
Submissions on a neglected, forgotten, or overlooked writer will be considered for NCLR's John Ehle Prize, sponsored by Press 53.
