PLUCK! The Journal of Affrilachian Arts & Culture
“Our mission is to continue extolling the affrilachian aesthetic, ‘making the invisible visible.’ To that end, our goal is to celebrate outstanding contemporary literature and feature images, essays and articles that celebrate the rich artistic and cultural heritage of the region and the urban centers that are home to many of its migrants, small towns, regional cities like Knoxville, Charleston, Nashville, Chattanooga, Asheville, Winston-Salem, Spartanburg, Lexington, Roanoke and major manufacturing and transportation centers such as Birmingham, Cincinnati and Pittsburgh. Our distribution area will include every place in the region where excellence, culture and creativity is appreciated.
“Submissions: PLUCK! is looking for voices of color from the states touched by the Appalachians (Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Ohio, Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, New York, and Pennsylvania) and work with a strong sense of place that addresses the poet’s unique experience in this brook of the African Diaspora.”
