Hats Off! to Nancy Werking Poling of Black Mountain, the winner of the 2018 Alex Albright Creative Nonfiction Prize for "Leander’s Lies." Nancy will receive $1,000 from the North Carolina Literary Review, thanks to a generous NCLR reader donation that allowed this year’s honorarium to increase from the previous ammount of $250. Nancy's winning essay will be published in NCLR 2019. Nancy is author of the nonfiction book Before it Was Legal: a Black-White Marriage (1945-1987).
