"Founded in 1876, Appalachia is the Appalachian Mountain Club's mountaineering and conservation journal, published twice a year in June and December.
Appalachia welcomes nonfiction submissions on the following topics: hiking; trekking; rock climbing; canoeing and kayaking; nature; mountain history and lore; and conservation. We recommend reading a sample issue before submitting materials.
Writers should submit unsolicited material by December 1 for the June issue, and by June 1 for the December issue.
Original poems about the above topics are also welcome. Shorter poems are preferred. Only eight poems are published per issue, which makes this the most competitive section of the journal; on average, one in 50 submissions is accepted."
