The North Carolina Writers’ Network 2021 Fall Conference will offer all the terrific programming you’ve come to expect, including an exhibit hall packed with some of the best and brightest literary lights in the state.

We’ll be introducing our exhibitors over the next week or so, in reverse alphabetical order. (If you missed Part I, click here.) Here are five more friends who’ll be in the exhibit hall, November 19-21 at the Sheraton Imperial Hotel in Durham/RTP:

With more than 375 members from North Carolina and beyond, the Poetry Society holds regular meetings four times a year in Southern Pines at the Weymouth Center for the Arts and Humanities. In addition, NCPS sponsors annual contests for adults and students, which offer cash prizes and award certificates; the annual Poet Laureate Award, judged by the state’s poet laureate; the annual Brockman-Campbell Book Award, recognizing the best book published by a North Carolina poet; and the annual Lena M. Shull Book Award, selecting for publication the best full-length unpublished poetry manuscript by a poet living in North Carolina, where the wining manuscript is published by St. Andrews University Press, and the winning poet leads a workshop and gives a reading at Poetry Day Hickory in April. In 2003, the NCPS Board of Trustees approved the establishment of the Gilbert-Chappell Distinguished Poet Series, where three distinguished North Carolina poets are selected annually to mentor student poets in the eastern, central, and western regions of the state.

Connecting the lives and creative work of authors to real (and imaginary) geographic locations. The mission of the North Carolina Literary Map is to highlight the literary heritage of the state by connecting the lives and creative work of authors to real (and imaginary) geographic locations. Through the development of a searchable and browseable data-driven online map, users are able to access a database, learning tools, and cultural resources, to deepen their understanding of specific authors as well as the cultural space that shaped these literary works. The NC Literary Map also offers apps for literary walking tours. For exaple, there are two literary walking tours for Greensboro, one for O. Henry and one for Randall Jarrell–inductees of the North Carolina Literary Hall of Fame, both.
