The Flashbacks section includes the year’s John Ehle Prize winner, an ecocritical reading of Ehle’s The Road by Savannah Page Murray, followed by an essay on the women in Charles Frazier’s Cold Mountain and Ron Rash’s Serena by John Hanley. Find here too Jim Coby’s interview with Nathan Ballingrud, who writes speculative fiction in the tradition of North Carolina’s Manly Wade Wellman, an essay by Timothy Nixon on a short story by Randall Kenan, and a few of the honorees of the 2020 James Applewhite Poetry Prize, whose poems relate to special feature topics of issues past.
More of the Applewhite Prize honorees, including the winner, are in the issue’s North Carolina Miscellany section, along with the 2020 winners of the Doris Betts Fiction Prize, Molly Sentell Haile, and the Alex Albright Creative Nonfiction Prize, Andrew Scrimgeour. All three of the 2020 prize winners are new to NCLR. Keely Hendricks’s Applewhite Prize poem is, in fact, the poet’s first publication.
