Appalachian Anthology of Nature WritingDeadline: 31 Mar 2017
Editor: Jessica Cory (Western Carolina University)Contact details:
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
* Environmental disasters (either natural or manmade)
* Natural history
* The Anthropocene
* 'Sense of Place'
* Appalachian ecologies
* The idea of wilderness
All submissions must be original work and previously unpublished with a maximum of 6000 words per work. While proposals are acceptable, the final work must be completed by the above deadline. Documents should be in .pdf, .doc, or .docx format.
The book is already under contract with a university press.
