Grant supports 9th annual Eastern North Carolina Literary Homecoming

Joyner Library at East Carolina University has received a $15,000 National Endowment for the Arts grant to support the Eastern North Carolina Literary Homecoming, a program that celebrates and promotes the culture and literature of North Carolina.

The library is one of 788 non-for-profit organizations nationwide to receive an NEA Art Works grant. The grants support creation of art that meets the highest standard of excellence, public engagement with diverse and excellent art, lifelong learning in the arts and strengthening communities through the arts.

With activities in five counties the literary homecoming provides a rich opportunity for eastern North Carolinians to learn about and meet North Carolina writers. The year’s event, scheduled for Sept. 21-22, marks the ninth literary homecoming. Themed “Litflix: Adapting North Carolina Literature into Film,” the event will explore how film can both enhance and distract from the written word. The program will engage participants in panel discussions and writing workshops. Events are planned in Wilson, Rocky Mount, New Bern, Morehead, City, Beaufort and Greenville and include a showcase of short films and programs presented by authors on the adaptions of their books into film.

The NEA received 1,624 eligible applications under the art works category for this round of funding, requesting more than $78 million in funding. For a complete listing of projects recommended for Art Works grant support, please visit the NEA website at
