100 Days in Appalachia began as an experimental pop-up publication, designed to candidly narrate the first 100 days of Donald Trump’s presidency from within the heart of a region dubbed “Trump Country.”

In the years since our founding, we have expanded that mission so that today, we tell the political, economic and human stories of communities that are more complex than national narratives have allowed. And unlike national media outlets, we don’t leave Appalachia when the story ends.

We’ve been here, and we’re still here. 

We are inviting a diverse range of new voices and perspectives to contribute to narrating the true story of this place — in words, pictures, video and experimental media. We invite you to submit your ideas and work to help create a new narrative for our region and start a dialogue, among outsiders and ourselves.

With your help, we can ensure that all sides and perspectives of our region’s complex, diverse story are represented accurately with fairness and dignity. 

Don’t have a story in mind, but still want to write for 100 Days? Add yourself to our list of Appalachian creatives for hire here so that we can pitch an idea to you!
