As her fans know, Margaret Maron has completed her 20-mystery series featuring traveling Judge Deborah Knott. In "From Manteo to Murphy: A Writer’s Personal Journey," an essay by Margaret Maron forthcoming in the award-winning North Carolina Literary Review, the author references her realization that she could send her judge/detective all over the state and through Deborah’s experiences “look at some of the issues confronting us at the end of the twentieth century while celebrating the state’s beauty and diversity.” NCLR is grateful to Margaret Maron for sharing her reflection upon writing her series with our readers for our 2018 issue, featuring North Carolina on the Map and in the News.
And now this…
How would you like to have a photograph of yours used in the layout of this essay by one of the talented graphic designers of the North Carolina Literary Review? Find on the left a list of places related to the Judge Knott cases mentioned in this essay. Over the years of bookstore readings and other public appearances after each new book in the series was published, according to the author, readers would recommend that she set the next book in … or … to which she would ask,
“What makes your town special?”
Consider the photographs you have taken of the highlights of your own North Carolina town or during your vacation to one of these towns—photographs that show what makes these places special. Send to us and if your photograph is selected by our graphic designer for use in the essay layout, we will send you the 1994 issue, featuring an early interview with the author and, of course, put you on the list to receive the 2018 issue, featuring Margaret Maron’s essay—and your photograph.
The first 10 to submit and the first to submit for each place we need photographs of will receive a back issue featuring that place, whether or not their photo is selected. (One free place-based back issue per person.)
