NCWN Welcomes Kelly March as New Communications Director

The North Carolina Writers’ Network is pleased to welcome Kelly March of Chapel Hill as its new Communications Director.

In this role, March will help the Network pursue its mission by focusing on its online presence, media relations, and community outreach. She also will help develop programs and organizational strategy.

“We’re excited to have Kelly take over our communications,” NCWN Executive Director Ed Southern said, “and we’re excited to see her ideas and energy put into practice.”

March brings a wealth of knowledge and skills to the role, both as a writer and communications professional. She is a former newspaper reporter and editor with a decade of experience in communications roles, most recently serving as a strategic communications specialist at UNC Chapel Hill. A graduate of the MFA program in Writing and Literature at Bennington College, she is currently working on her first collection of essays.

“It’s an honor to join the NCWN team,” March said. “I admire the vital work the Network does to connect, promote, and serve the writing community in our state, and I’m excited to have the opportunity to work in service of that mission.”

The non-profit North Carolina Writers’ Network is the state’s oldest and largest literary arts services organization devoted to all writers at all stages of development. For additional information, visit
