Submissions are currently being accepted for an anthology of Appalachian nature writing, tentatively titled Appalachian Nature. While there are locale-specific nature writing anthologies, this will be the first to focus on the entire Appalachian region.

Fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, and one-act plays are welcomed and demographics traditionally underrepresented in Appalachian literature are encouraged to submit. While all contributions should engage with the Appalachian environment specifically, possible topics or themes include, but are certainly not limited to, the following:

-Travel narratives

-Bucolic nature

-Disability and the environment

-Animal studies

As our daily lives have grown more and more dominated by technology and by a corresponding fascination with the “new,” there’s been a counter movement interested in reexamining the ways of “the past.”  Whether it is handmade books, craft-made pickles, vintage automobiles, or handlebar mustaches, indeed the cliché often seems true now: what’s old is new again.
