Mid/South Anthology features forty talented writers from Arkansas,
Oklahoma, Texas, Louisiana, and other surrounding states that
represent a unique part of American culture. While this region is
often misunderstood as one type of place, the Mid-South belongs
to a little bit of everywhere: part Southwest, part Midwest, part
South—always wild. Our area of the country is both a space of its
own and part of a larger, complicated Southern world: the “Mid/
South.” In this collection, poetry, short stories, and essays offer
glimpses into this in-between place as they explore the complexities
of our relationships to each other as well as to the natural world.
Whether through vivid landscapes, family dramas, or bittersweet
love stories, each piece brings more insight into what it means to
be from around here.

This is the first publication by Belle Point Press, a new independent
small press based in Fort Smith, Arkansas. Our mission is to
celebrate the literary culture of the American Mid-South: all its
paradoxes and contradictions, all the ways it gets us home.
