Anyone who has lived in Appalachia, or who currently lives in Appalachia, is eligible for membership.  The only requirement is interest in the writing process, in whatever form the member might choose.

The Appalachian region incorporates those eastern mountains, which flow from Alabama to Maine, offering landscapes of high peaks or foothills, cities, towns, or wilderness.  People who write about Appalachia are choosing to focus on one of the last regional environments, culturally, economically, and biologically.  Yet, the diversity within Appalachia offers a portrait of our nation.
