Friends of the North Carolina Literary Review

Former North Carolina Poet Laureate Kathryn Stripling Byer wrote to the NCLR staff,

"Everyone at the North Carolina Literary Review is a hero to me."

There are many others across the state who are also heroes. Largely because of North Carolina citizens' heroic appreciation of our writers, the North Carolina Literary Review continues to thrive in an era of dwindling economic support for publishers of literature. The East Carolina University Foundation provides the opportunity for you, too, to become a literary hero by joining aspecial group of supporters.

Be a hero to us. Become a Friend of theĀ North Carolina Literary Review.
