Northern Appalachia Review
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, April 1, 2020

The Northern Appalachia Review, a new regional literary journal, welcomes writing about, representing, or engaging with the experience of living in or being from northern Appalachia. We believe that this region, while part of greater Appalachia, is also distinct in its cultural landscape, and, as a result, its literature. We seek work that will establish a voice and literary identity for northern Appalachia, exemplifies the region and its nuanced culture, and/or furthers the ever-evolving definition of Appalachia as a whole.

We encourage submissions from established and emerging writers in the following genres:
