Pembroke Magazine

If it ain't Pembroke, fix it.

​Published at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke, Pembroke Magazine has been printed annually since its founding in 1969.

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 -- #47 -- features provocative cover art from South Carolina based photographer Alrinthea Carter. Inside, you'll find a bevy of fine poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction, alongside Forrest Anderson's candid interview with debut novelist Tom Cooper, whose The Marauders (Random House, Feb. 3) Stephen King calls "a little Elmore Leonard, a little Charles Portis, and very much its own uniquely American self." It's also currently being adapted for television by AMC.

For more insights, visit Pembroke Magazine's blog, Local Color, where right now you can get a peek into #47 with an excerpt of the Tom Cooper Q&A and a gallery of more photos from Alrinthea Carter. We're already hard at work on the 48th edition and look forward to debuting it at AWP L.A. in 2016.


Check back often for updates. And follow PM on Facebook and Twitter to learn more about what other exciting developments are in store for the nearly fifty-year-old journal.
