Publisher’s description: Published at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke, Pembroke Magazine has been printed annually since its founding in 1969. It has grown from a student publication of forty-eight pages to a book-length journal edited by a UNC Pembroke creative writing faculty member. Regional in focus and international in scope, Pembroke Magazine features poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, interviews, and visual art from North Carolina, the United States, and beyond—honoring established artists and welcoming emerging ones.
Since its founding 45 years ago, Pembroke Magazine has featured the likes of Robert Morgan, Lee Smith, Jill McCorkle, Glenna Luschei, and Sally Buckner, alongside new and rising stars. With a long history of remembering regional writers, past issues have paid tribute to such greats as Chris Fuhrman (including a short essay by Jodie Foster and an excerpt from The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys) and Tim McLaurin (with remembrances from Pat Conroy, Kaye Gibbons, and Larry Brown).
