We're more excited than ever to bring everyone together and continue the important discussion on the literature of northern Appalachia.
WHAT WILL THE CONFERENCE LOOK LIKE?
The conference will serve as a catalyst to inspire more novels, poetry, essays, history, memoir, drama, and other modes of literary writing that represent, in some way, northern Appalachia.
The exposure gained by the conference and the projects that stem from the conference will generate support for authors of northern Appalachia, which will ensure that the voice of this remarkable part of the country is acknowledged, appreciated, and preserved.
The goal of this event is to bring writers, researchers, and literary scholars together to recognize this distinct literature and to establish a canon of writers and writing of northern Appalachia.
