• Image of The American South: On the Map and in the Mind

In this special issue of Guernica, the first of four made possible by our readers through Kickstarter, we offer fresh takes on a familiar landscape, where the American South is at once a geographical distinction and a bright spot in the imagination, where burden vies with birthright, and where ignorance and renaissance exist side by side.

All proceeds will go toward compensating writers and editors, and keeping our award-winning content online for free.
