Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
We are devoted to writing of people and place. Our series feature undeserved audiences...We believe in a sense of place and person, in writing that reveals through its directness an essential human story. We also support the history and development of Working Class Literature and Appalachian Literature, and we work to provide outlets for that writing and information on that vital art. We have headquarters in Huron, Ohio at POBox 425, Huron, Ohio 44839. Our email is [email protected]
