From the North Carolina Literary Review guidelines:

NCLR publishes interviews and literary criticism about North Carolina writers and high-quality poetry, fiction, drama, and creative nonfiction by North Carolina writers or set in North Carolina. Our definition of a North Carolina writer is anyone who currently lives in North Carolina, has lived in North Carolina, or uses North Carolina as subject matter.

SPECIAL FEATURE SECTION: Much of each issue is thematically focused, but creative writing submissions (considered through our competitions) do not have to focus on an issue's theme.


Ideas for future special feature topics are very welcome! Please send the (literary) topic you would like to see us explore to the Editor.
