New Southerner is an online magazine promoting self-sufficiency, environmental stewardship and support for local economies. We believe these values are essential to the health and happiness of all people and the natural world. In addition to the online magazine, we sponsor an annual literary contest and publish finalists and winners in The New Southerner Literary Edition, which appears online and in print.
