Celebrating Black NC Writers!

Super excited that today was the deadline for the first Jacobs/Jones African American Literary Prize that I help to start through the NC Writers Network! Can’t wait to hear about the winner!

BIG THANKS to Michele Berger and Ed Southern of NCWN as well as founding donors Carol Brown Alan, MD; E. Patrick Johnson, PhD; and Reggie Shuford, JD.!
