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 current edition of PM -- #46 -- features a bevy of fine poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction, alongside intimate interviews with Holly Goddard Jones and Jill McCorkle. It's a can't-miss volume. For more insights, visit Pembroke Magazine's blog, Local Color, where right now you can get a sneak peek of the forthcoming edition -- #47 -- by reading an excerpt from Forrest Anderson's candid interview with Tom Cooper, whose debut novel The Marauders (Random House, Feb. 3) has already garnered acclaim from the likes of Stephen King, Nic Pizzolatto, and O Magazine. It's a Pembroke Magazine exclusive, with thanks and kudos to Tom Cooper. Congratulations go out as well to former Pembroke Magazine editor Shelby Stephenson, a 2014 inductee to the North Carolina Literary Hall of Fame and newly minted State Poet Laureate.
