NORTH CAROLINA STUDENT JOURNAL SEEKS AUTHORS ON FOODWAYS

Seeking authors on "food and foodways" topics related to North Carolina history. Tar Heel Junior Historian is a nonprofit journal for students in grades 4-12 that has been published by the North Carolina Museum of History since 1962. Our spring issue has this theme, and articles of roughly 1,000 words (scholarly in tone but no footnotes required) will be due around early February. No financial compensation--just the chance to interest young people and their teachers in history, educate them on topics not always found in their textbooks, and point them toward other resources if appropriate (plus ten copies of the finished journal and the chance to get your name out there)! For more information on contributing or to make suggestions, contact editor Lisa Coston Hall at lisa.hall@ncmail.net or 919-807-7941.
