Information about your publication: Appalachia Fiction and Fact was founded in 2011 by an Albion College student with a desire to raise awareness about the devastating effects of mountaintop removal on the ecosystem and people of the Appalachian Mountains. This online literary magazine is dedicated to publishing both fictional and nonfictional forms of creative expression specifically revolving around the subjects of Appalachia and the Appalachian Mountains. However, it is also open to reading and perhaps even publishing works of radical environmental writing pertaining to other subjects.
What type of submissions you are looking for: Appalachia Fiction and Fact is interested in publishing pieces that do three things:??? 1. Shock. Mountaintop removal is horrible. So if you’re writing about it, let the horror writer inside you burst out. We are not interested in publishing pieces simply because they are pretty, so don’t try to submit your field notes from your latest bird watching trip with the Audubon Society. We want pieces that will make people’s jaws drop, pieces that will make people angry.??? 2. Inspire. We don’t just want to make people angry. We want to make people translate their anger into action.??? 3. Educate. Remember, while you should strive to entertain your audience, you should also make sure you leave them with some new bit of knowledge that they did not have before, something interesting they can pass on to everyone they know. It is our hope that pieces that contain all three of these components will some day contribute to actual political change.
