South Writ Large: Stories from the Global South is an anthology of personal essays, articles, poetry, and artwork that explores the culture of the U.S. South and its extensive connections to other regions of the world. The collection is composed of articles published over the past ten years in the online magazine South Writ Large, which examines the changing South in its symbolic and psychological complexity to stimulate conversation about the culture of the South at home and abroad. The anthology’s accomplished contributors work in broad-ranging fields: novelist Jill McCorkle; poet Jaki Shelton Green; historians Clay Risen and Malinda Maynor Lowery; journalist and politician W. Hodding Carter III; author and chef Bill Smith; and artists Bo Bartlett and Welmon Sharlhome. The introduction is by novelist Michael Malone and the afterword is by anthropologist Jim Peacock, whose Global South concept inspired South Writ Large Magazine and this anthology.
