      Subject: CALL-FOR-SUBMISSIONS: CrossRoads: A Southern Culture Annual, Volume
      Two

      CrossRoads: A Southern Culture Annual is a new publication dedicated to the
      interdisciplinary study and artistic appreciation of the South (broadly
      defined) and of Southern culture. To appear in Spring 2004 and to be
      published thereafter as an annual book 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 periodical 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      featured previously unpublished material by many of the leading scholars and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, Mary Ulmer Chiltosky, Jim Clark, James Dickey, Robert
      Drake, William Ferris, Ann Fisher-Wirth, Wayne Flynt, Ernest Gaines, David
      Galef, Eugene Genovese, Kathryn Gurkin, Alex Haley, Fred Hobson, David
      Huddle, Patricia Spears Jones, Jack Temple Kirby, Jeff Daniel Marion, Ed
      McClanahan, Walter McDonald, Ethelbert Miller, Robert Morgan, Marilyn Nance,
      Tom Rankin, John Shelton Reed, Sheryl St. Germain, Jon Michael Spencer, Joel
      Williamson, and Steve Young.
      The first volume of CrossRoads: A Southern Culture Annual, slated for
      publication in April 2004, will feature new work by such scholars and
      artists as Kimberly Greene Angle, Brooks Blevins, Henry A. Buchanan, James
      E. Cherry, Mariea Caudill Dennison, G. Wayne Dowdy, Jo Angela Edwins, Bart
      Galloway, Allean Hale, M. Thomas Inge, Dorothy Hampton Marcus, Robert
      Morgan, Mendi Lewis Obadike, James A. Perkins, Ron Rash, Randy Rudder,
      Jean-Mark Sens, Charles D. Thompson Jr., Jaclyn Weldon White, and Brenda
      Witchger. The scholarly work in the first volume of CrossRoads: A Southern
      Culture Annual explores such topics as Southern language, literature, visual
      art, music, and food, and elucidates Southern perspectives on religion,
      race, ethnicity, gender, and regional identity. That volume will also
      contain compelling creative work from a number of leading writers and visual
      artists from the South.
      To order copies of the first volume of CrossRoads: A Southern Culture
      Annual, please contact Mercer University Press via phone (toll free) at
      800-637-2378, ext. 2880 or 800-342-0841, ext. 2880 (in GA), or via email at

      DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS:

      CrossRoads: A Southern Culture Annual is currently seeking submissions for
      its second volume. These submissions can include-but are not limited
      to-analytical academic essays, oral histories, memoirs, profile essays,
      photo essays, creative writing, and artwork. 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.

      To have your work considered for the second volume of CrossRoads: A Southern
      Culture Annual, you may send materials postmarked before July 31, 2004, to:

      Ted Olson, Editor
      CrossRoads: A Southern Culture Annual
      ETSU, Box 70400
      Johnson City, TN 37614

      Please include disposable copies of manuscripts. Submissions will not be
      returned. Should you have any questions, you may contact the editor:
