CROSSROADS: A SOUTHERN CULTURE ANNUAL
_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unpublished material by many of the leading scholars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@...
