The NCLR editors welcome suggestions for future issues' special feature section topics.
Although we will consider Civil War literature, we are particularly interested in North Carolina literature that deals with other wars, from the Revolutionary War to the current conflicts in the Middle East.
Fiction and Poetry for the special feature section
must be submitted to the Doris Betts Fiction Prize and James Applewhite Poetry Prize competitions (although submissions to these competitions do not have to be related to the special feature topic).
Fiction deadline: February 15, 2013
Poetry deadline: May 1, 2013
Creative nonfiction deadline: December 1, 2013.
