Meet Julia Watts: our guest fiction editor for 2022
"My fiction focuses on Appalachians who don’t fit the stereotypes and often who don’t fit in, period, because they’re LGBTQ+, because they dream of life beyond the mountains, or (in the case of my middle-grade trilogy) because they have psychic powers. I write adult fiction, young adult fiction, and middle-grade fiction, all set in the Appalachian region."
