Foundation for Appalachian Advancement

The FAA will be working to coordinate an annual writer’s retreat to include guest speakers and an opportunity to promote published works to the public. By building a vast network of connections with writers from around the region, collectively we can promote this event to give publicity to those that help define our culture, celebrate our way of life, and passionately write about our history here in Appalachia.
