DEADLINE AUGUST 31, 2024 for interviews and literary criticism 

Fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction must be submitted through our competitions, NOT in this category (unless invited by the Guest Editor). Those submission categories will be available for submission when each reading period is open. 

For more information, see NCLR's full submission guidelines.  
Please consult the Author Style Sheet before submitting to this category.

Submissions on a neglected, forgotten, or overlooked writer will be considered for NCLR's John Ehle Prize, sponsored by Press 53. Submissions on a new writer will be considered for NCLR's new Randall Kenan Prize, sponsored by the Creative Writing program at UNC Chapel Hill. Recipients of these honors receive $250.  

We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
