BMR is looking for its next featured photographer or visual artist!

Backbone Mountain Review (BMR) is an annual literary journal showcasing the creative talents and cultural diversity of the people and places within the Appalachian Mid-Atlantic. Each year we feature selected artwork by one visual artist or photographer. Artists who wish to be featured in our next issue should reside in or have close personal ties to the geographical region (defined on the next page). Artists with no ties to the area may also submit, provided their work features the people or places within the BMR community.
