North Carolina Literary Trails

Everywhere you turn in North Carolina there are amazing stories. There is something particularly rich in the sound of stories as they are told by Tar Heels — the cadence and the color, the intimacy of tragedy and humor — all offered in accents and syntax as changeable as the landscape of the state. We invite you to see N.C. through our writers’ eyes.
