In this age of information overload, Appalachian Heritage strives to be a literary sanctuary for the finest contemporary writing and visual art that we can find.

Based at Berea College and now in its forty-first year of publication, Appalachian Heritage considers previously unpublished fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, writing for young adults, craft essays, book reviews, and visual art. In addition to new and emerging writers, contributors to the magazine include finalists for the Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award; winners of the T. S. Eliot Award, the E.B. White Award, an O. Henry Prize, among others; and multiple Pushcart Prize nominees. Works by contributors have been reprinted in New Stories from the South and other notable anthologies.

Past contributors to Appalachian Heritage include Harriette Arnow, Pinckney Benedict, Wendell Berry, Nikki Giovanni, bell hooks, Silas House, Fenton Johnson, Maurice Manning, Jim Wayne Miller, Ann Pancake, Jayne Anne Phillips, Ron Rash, Lee Smith, James Still, Neela Vaswani, and Frank X Walker.
