“Upscale Appalachia” is a new, up and
coming online magazine that aims to display
local and mountain (Appalachian) culture.
This online magazine will feature written
literature, oral histories, music, outdoor life,
art, photography, videography and more.
The entire project is being headed by Kristina
Holland, an English professor on sabbatical
this semester, at Brevard College. She became
interested in this online magazine idea after
doing her dissertation work that focused on
“As a native to Brevard, I have always been
interested in mountain culture, but during
my doctoral research, I became vested in the
preservation of mountain culture,” Holland
said. That is what has inspired her to put this
idea into action.
She has several trusted staff members
working with her on this magazine. The
students involved are Alexis Henley, Carmen
Boone, Katie McBriar and Aaron Butts.
Henley and Boone are mainly the editors
while McBriar and Butts do most of the web
“Upscale Appalachia” also has an advisory
board. It consists of BC alumna Kendra Jones,
staff member Mary Harris and faculty member
emeritus (former professor) Dr. Ken Chamlee.
Holland hopes to create a sustainable online
magazine that showcases all multimedia
formats, and can be published each semester.
The goal is to give students and community
members an opportunity to be published using
all kinds of disciplines and mediums.
“This is an opportunity for people to explore
the local area through a creative lens. I
encourage all interested to submit,” said
Holland. Any students that might be interested
in working on the magazine should contact Dr.
Kristina Holland at email@example.com.
Submissions that are acceptable include any
creative work connected to Appalachia in some
way. The author must either be native to the
region or must currently live in Appalachia,
OR, regardless of the author’s origin, content
that explores the region is acceptable for
publication as well.
“Artwork, creative writing, videos,
photography and other submissions that
capture mountain culture may be submitted
to firstname.lastname@example.org before 15
March, 2020,” Holland said.
