AWP Virtual Exhibit

Welcome to the UNC Press Virtual Exhibit for the Association of Writers and Writing Programs.


Since we can’t be together at the conference, we’re bringing our book exhibit to you.

From virtually anywhere, you can browse our list of new and recent titles, chat with one of our acquisitions editors Lucas Church or Cate Hodorowicz, and more.


UNC Press has partnerships with four journals that publish creative writing.

Appalachian Review

https://uncpress.org/journals/appalachian-review/
Formerly Appalachian Heritage, this journal showcases the work of emerging and established writers throughout Appalachia and beyond.

North Carolina Literary Review

https://uncpress.org/journals/north-carolina-literary-review/
Publishes poetry, fiction, and nonfiction by NC writers, as well as interviews, articles, and essays about the state’s literary culture.

The Greensboro Review

https://uncpress.org/journals/the-greensboro-review/
Faculty- and student-run journal from UNC Greensboro showcasing writers whose work may be risk-taking or overlooked.

Southern Cultures

https://uncpress.org/journals/southern-cultures/
This award-winning journal explores the history, politics, folklore, literature, and art of the South.


The events of the past few months have brought new attention to subjects like police brutality, institutionalized racism, protests and activism, and more. These subjects are among the pillars of the UNC Press publishing program, and have cast new light on some of our newest books, and some of our classic bestselling titles.

Some of these books are highlighted in our Justice, Power, and Politics series.

You can also check out our full listing of new and classic books in African American Studies.
