Flat Rock history via a road

Travelling back in time on a Flat Rock roadby Rob Neufeld             If you walk the one mile length of North Highland Lake Road in Flat Rock, you step nearly 200 years into the past.            At the east end, the 21st century reigns.  Fronting six-lane Spartanburg Highway, a super-Ingles sits above a bog; and a CVS store faces an Octopus Garden smoke shop, a chiropractor, a cell phone provider, and a six-lane avenue to I-26 a mile away .            Neither Ingles nor CVS carries the big…See More

The Great Smokies Review has launched, and it's worth a visit

Some writers can use language to create images that evoke the gamut of emotions. Some writers can tell a darn good story. But not every writer can do both.

Paula Kane, a long-time student in the Great Smokies Writing Program, is a card-carrying member of that special class of writers whose words can make you shiver with their beauty while still satisfying your desire for plots and character development. Her short story, "The Color of Magic," appears in the premier issue of The Great Smokies Review, the new on-line literary magazine from the Great Smokies Writing Program and UNC-Asheville.

This first issue has something for everyone who is interested in WNC arts and literature: short stories; memoir; poetry; novel excerpts; an intriguing interview with screenwriter Joe Stinson, who gives advice that can benefit writers of all genres; and an insightful craft article discussing the use of coincidence in fiction.

I'm excited by the variety and overall excellence of The Great Smokies Review's launch. WNC has its share of literary giants on the mountaintops, but high-quality poetry and literature are bubbling up through the "valleys" of our writing programs as well. Please check out the premier issue of The Great Smokies Review.

Hi Joy:

Glad you've joined the fan club!

Great Smokies Review Editor Elizabeth Lutyens tells me that the plan is to publish once a semester (fall, spring, summer). Her team is working on the spring issue right now, and they are aiming to post the spring issue in March/April 2010.

Isn't it good to know local writing programs are helping writers at all levels fine-tune their craft?-Caralyn
