We're rewriting the Appalachian narrative one story at a time.
Appalachia is portrayed inaccurately by the national media. Based on their coverage, Appalachians are simpleminded, ambition-less, and no more than a case study –– not a real place with real people. As a coalition of young Appalachians, we are committed to rewriting the narrative of the place we call home. The mission of Only in Appalachia is to highlight the positive stories and champion the people and places of Appalachia. We want to show you the real Appalachia and tell you the stories that wouldn't be told otherwise.
