      We Need Writers

      The staff of the Encyclopedia of Appalachia being published by the ETSU
      Center for Appalachian Studies and Services seeks writers for the section
      entitled Household Economies and Cottage Industries. This section deals
      with the alternative economies and cottage industries that have thrived in
      Appalachia for decades, such as herb gathering, illicit spirits and drugs,
      flea markets, roadside produce stands, and the like. The list of topics is
      shown below.

      If you have done research on or would like to research any of the topics
      listed related to the Appalachian region, please contact the Managing
      Editor Jill Oxendine at oxendine@.... When e-mailing, please provide
      your complete snail mail address, so we can send you a contributor's
