About Flying South
Flying South is more than a collection of beautifully crafted stories, poems and creative non-fiction, it is an exploration of humanity. The work stands on its own, picked without knowledge of the writers' names or backgrounds, a process which has resulted in writing that touches a range of emotions worth exploring. The prose and poetry in this volume was created by writers with diverse international backgrounds - joined together only through their exceptional talents. Winston-Salem Writers is the proud sponsor of this collection. Flying South is published annually. Submissions are accepted each year from March 1 through May 31.
