Dear Colleagues,

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
