This winter Smoky Mountain Living is celebrating the home. Help share the joys of home by telling about your hometown in 300 words or less.
Some questions to consider as you think about writing are: What was it like growing up in your hometown? What are your favorite memories? What does it feel like to be home? What gave/gives the town a sense of place? Why did you leave or did you? Would you live in your hometown again or do you live there now? What's one thing you would tell any visitor to your hometown to make sure to do?
Submissions must include a picture of the writer (current or, even better, in the hometown) as well as full name, current address, hometown name, email and phone number.
Submissions should be by those who grew up in the Southern Appalachian region or are now living in the Southern Appalachian region.
