Now & Then:

The Appalachian Magazine


 Poetry:  Fall/Winter 2016 Issue
The Future of Appalachia

Beginning Submission Date:           July 1, 2016

Final Submission Date/Deadline:     August 31, 2016


Poets may submit up to five poems for consideration.

Note: We prefer first publication rights but do accept reprints and simultaneous submissions. You need to supply us with signed reprint permission and inform us of other publications considering the work. Acceptance and publication in another Appalachian-focused publication precludes its use in Now & Then: The Appalachian Magazine.

Submission Procedure

Please email your poems as a single attached Word document to  Include in this document all poems submitted, a brief statement of your work's pertinence to the theme and the region and full contact information—your email address, regular mailing address, and daytime phone number(s).


Our editorial staff strives to protect the integrity of the work while ensuring a finished product of which we can all be proud. As a nonprofit educational initiative, Now & Then: The Appalachian Magazine offers a complimentary copy of the issue in which the poet is published, along with a design PDF copy of your published work. We also ask for a brief writer bio of two to three sentences.

We grant First NA (North American) Serial Rights. This means that after publication the rights revert to the author; we ask that credit in reprinted pieces is given to Now & Then: The Appalachian Magazine. For further questions about serial rights, please contact us.
