NCLR is the essential journal of note for Tar Heel literature and any of us are always honored and pleased to be featured in its pages.  I certainly am. Every issue contains surprises, remembrances, and challenges to one’s creativity.  And from the beginning, visually, it has been a feast.  I can’t think of another “state” journal like it.  Can you?”—Jeffery Beam, poet
