Book Reviews

Announcement from Gwen:
Hello! I have agreed to begin writing book reviews for Encore Magazine in 2016.
Encore is a weekly magazine, we plan to pair one new book with another older companion book in each piece. Do you have forthcoming titles that would be a good fit for our publication? I am interested in reading novels, short story collections, essay collections, anthologies, memoirs, creative nonfiction, biography, history and science. This is not the right venue for poetry. However, I also write the book reviews for our sister publication, Devour, which is a food magazine. If you have a food related book (narrative or how to) please consider sending it to us for that publication.
Review copies may be posted to:
Old Books on Front St.
Attn: Gwenyfar
249 N. Front St.
Wilmington, NC 28401

Please note: Encore and Devour do not guarantee that every book will be selected for a review, nor do we guarantee that every review will be positive – the point of a review is to give an honest, thoughtful assessment. No “digital only” books will be considered.
