The Spring/Summer 2017 issue (#43.3-4) of Appalachian Journal featuring my poem “Cover Us With Mountains,” is now available for purchase from Appalachian State University. Issues of the journal are also archived and publicly available at the Kanawha County Public Library and the WV Library Commission at the WV Culture Center.
Appalachian Journal is Appalachian State University’s interdisciplinary, peer reviewed, academic, cultural, literary and “regional studies” journal. The journal has also featured work by Ron Rash and Roxane Gay.
My poem, “Cover Us With Mountains,” was inspired by events surrounding the 2014 Elk River, WV chemical spill and subsequent water crisis.
