Appalachia Issue

Appalachia is perhaps America's most misunderstood region, a mountainous
land of hard-working people and devastating (and, too often, devastated)
beauty, a place that is ridiculed by residents of America's glory
coasts-ridiculed, that is, when it is paid any attention at all. But
what really goes on in Appalachia? What are the poems and stories and
songs that come from these mountains, and how do they illuminate the
people who live there?

Big Tex[t] seeks submissions for a special issue on Appalachia. We
welcome works that explore these mountains and these people, works that
capture the sadness and joy of the region and place it all into some
sort of coherent context--or not. We are open to form; what we require
is passion.
