An anthology focused on the unique culture of Ohio's Appalachian population. A one-of-a-kind collection, sponsored by the Academy of American Poets and Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
A copy of the anthology, published in March 2022, was provided to all 732 libraries throughout Ohio and to every Ohio Appalachian middle and high school library.
A lavish mix of voices—Affrilachian, Indigenous, non-binary and LGBTQ; from teens to those creatively aging; poets in recovery, some differently-abled or with developmental differences; emerging and well established; some living in the state, others from assorted locations throughout the country—all with a deep connection to Appalachian Ohio.
The anthology was published in partnership with Sheila-Na-Gig Editions.
