Nobody’s Home: Modern Southern Folklore is an online anthology of nonfiction works about beliefs, myths, and narratives in Southern culture over the last fifty years, in the late 20th and early 21st centuries.  The project, created in 2020 by writer-editor Foster Dickson, collects personal essays, memoirs, short articles, opinion pieces, and contemplative works about the ideas, experiences, and assumptions that have shaped life below the old Mason-Dixon Line since 1970.

The editor of Nobody’s Home is interested in interviews with subjects who can competently and thoughtfully discuss one or more beliefs, myths, and narratives have shaped or affected life in the South since 1970. Submissions of interviews will be considered year-round.  (See the Submissions page for more.)
