Welcome

Writers from, living in, or writing about Northern Appalachia — the Appalachia counties of Ohio, Pennsylvania, Maryland, New York, and the northern portion of West Virginia — have yet to be distinguished with a literary identity, as their stories have been underrepresented and undervalued in the broader culture.

With your help, this publication aims to change that.


About Northern Appalachia Review

Mission

The Northern Appalachia Review seeks to convey the character of the people and places of northern Appalachia by publishing literature that best represents the region as both distinct from and part of greater Appalachia.


Vision

The Northern Appalachia Review is a catalyst to inspire more novels, poetry, essays, history, memoir, drama, and other modes of literary writing that represent, in some way, our region. The exposure offered by the review will generate support for the authors of Northern Appalachia, ensuring that the voice of this remarkable part of the country is acknowledged, appreciated, and preserved.
