The Council of Literary Magazines and Presses interviewed Margaret Bauer for their 2009-2010 directory published by Red Hen Press. The interview begins:
CLMP: How did you arrive at your current position?
Bauer: I was hired by East Carolina University in 1996 to teach Southern and North Carolina literature and to edit the North Carolina Literary Review. It has taken me most of my dozen years as editor to get to my "current position" -- ambassador for North Carolina literature, which is how I would describe my role as editor of the North Carolina Literary Review -- and I feel privileged to serve the state's talented writers.
