The Fourth Batch of New Works in “Nobody’s Home”

Earlier this week, the fourth batch of creative nonfiction works was added to Nobody’s Home: Modern Southern Folklore. That batch completes the initial compilation of the online anthology, which has taken place during the last year. The anthology now has forty-four works by forty-one writers from all over the South, as well as twenty-three posts in the editor’s blog. Not a bad final result for a year’s work, and more is coming later in 2021: lesson plans and more blog posts. To read the published works, visit the anthology’s index.

For those writers who may still want to submit, there will be an open submissions period in the spring, and I will continue to look at submissions of reviews and interviews year-round. 

Finally, here is a selection of posts from Groundwork, my editor’s blog:
