A Literary Welcome

Welcome to the online companion to Pembroke Magazine, where you'll find history, submission guidelines, archives, news, and more. Peruse the pages and get to know this unique publication, providing the best literary offerings from North Carolina and beyond since 1969.

The latest edition of PM -- #48 -- is hot off the presses and delivers 176 pages of the finest poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction. From almost-Eagle Scouts to competitive eaters to the very real education of a university student in the National Guard, there's something for everyone in one of our largest volumes to date. With a debut at AWP Los Angeles, #48 is now out in the world. Grab a copy before it's sold out -- then post a pic with yours so we can all join in the traveling lit mag fun. 

For more insights, visit Pembroke Magazine's blog, Local Color, where right now you can view a gallery of the 48th edition's latest photographic exploits plus read an excerpt from #48 with Gabriel Welsch's stunning new story "Walking Man" and Heather Breed Steadham's nonfiction AWP ruminations, "A Brief Chronology of Pretty." You'll also find gems from the archives, including South Carolina-based photographer Alrinthea Carter's haunting Southern landscapes and Forrest Anderson's #47 Q&A with debut novelist Tom Cooper.
