There’s nothing common about common ravens. They play tricks and outsmart humans. They hide in plain sight, inventing new escape routes. From Poe to Norse mythology, the raven has ignited the imagination. It is in this spirit of wily agility, magic within the mundane, and killer insight that Franklin Pierce University hosts the Northern New England Review Raven Prize in Creative Nonfiction, celebrating true stories imaginatively told.
