      _CrossRoads: A Southern Culture Annual_ is a
      publication dedicated to the interdisciplinary study
      and artistic appreciation of the South (broadly
      defined) and of Southern culture (including Appalachian
      culture). To appear in Fall 2004 and to be published
      annually thereafter by Mercer University Press,
      _CrossRoads: A Southern Culture Annual_ will continue
      the editorial approach of _CrossRoads: A Journal of
      Southern Culture_, a semi-legendary periodical originally
      published in the early 1990s by a dedicated group of
      graduate students affiliated with the University of
      Mississippi's Center for the Study of Southern Culture.
      The original version of _CrossRoads_ featured previously
      unpublished material by many of the leading scholars
      and artists committed to interpreting and celebrating
      the South, including Rob Amberg, A. R. Ammons, James Dickey,
      William Ferris, Ernest Gaines, Eugene Genovese,
      Kathryn Gurkin, Alex Haley, Robert Morgan, Tom Rankin,
      John Shelton Reed, Sheryl St. Germain, Jon Michael
      Spencer, and Steve Young.

      _CrossRoads: A Southern Culture Annual_ is currently
      seeking submissions for its inaugural issue. These
      submissions can include--but are not limited
      to--analytical academic essays, oral histories,
      memoirs, creative writing, artwork, and photography.
      The main criteria ensuring consideration for the
      inaugural issue--and for subsequent issues--are that
      all submitted materials should (to borrow Faulkner's
      famous phrase) "tell about the South" and that they
      should do so memorably.

      Deadline for Submissions: To have your work considered
      for the first issue of _CrossRoads: A Southern Culture
      Annual_, you may send materials by JUNE 15, 2003, to

      Ted Olson, Editor, CrossRoads, ETSU, Box 70400,
      Johnson City, TN 37614.

      If you have any questions, please contact the editor
      at 423-439-4379; olson@...
