Literary Spotlight: Ecotone

This award-winning literary journal seeks fiction, nonfiction, and poetry that examines ways in which environmental and social justice intersect.

“There’s never been a greater need to think about the ways that creative work can help illuminate intersections between environmental and social justice,” says Anna Lena Phillips Bell, editor and art director of Ecotone, the award-winning literary magazine at the University of North Carolina Wilmington.

Author and creative writing professor David Gessner founded the publication in 2005. An ecotone is a space of transition between two biological communities – the grasslands between a forest and desert, for example, or a marsh between water and land. Likewise, the magazine connects literary prose and poetry with personal reflection on place.
