Nantahala: A Review of Writing and Photography from Appalachia is an online journal launched in 2000 featuring work from regional artists. Nantahala is edited and produced by several professors from colleges in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, and in addition to writing and photography, publishes audio and video clips of featured artists. Because many residents (academic and non-academic) of the Appalachian region are geographically isolated and may not have access to large libraries, the journal also aims to create an online community of readers and regional writers and photographers.
