      CALL-FOR-SUBMISSIONS: CrossRoads: A Southern Culture Annual

      CrossRoads: A Southern Culture Annual is a new publication dedicated to
      the interdisciplinary study and artistic appreciation of the South
      (broadly defined) and 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      featured previously unpublished material by many of the leading scholars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 June 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, politics, 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 mupressorders@...

      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 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 June 30,
      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:
