Art teachers descended upon Hindman last weekend for our inaugural Appalachian Art Educators Summit! With the support of South Arts, we were able to host 19 art educators here for a day of professional development, networking, and fellowship!

Margo Wunder and Grace Henderson led educational sessions on teaching art to special needs students and how artists can prepare for a residency. We ended the day with a workshop on corn husk dolls lead by Sally Yates. Sally teaches her families particular style of Appalachian corn husk doll making from the Ritchie Family in Perry County. We hope to continue to support art educators in Appalachia through events like this in the future!

That would be a dream Summit for me and amazing workshop.

Appalachia is place rich in literary tradition and brimming with important literary voices, and during my time at Hindman, I had the pleasure of sharing space and spending time with writers whom I intensely admire. I plan to come every year possible, as I feel that I have found my new literary family. -Sara

Untelling is the print literary and arts magazine of Hindman Settlement School, a historical and cultural nonprofit in Knott County, Kentucky which has served as a seedbed for literature and the arts for over a century. “Untelling” is a regional colloquialism used when storytelling or speculating, such as “It’s untelling what will happen.” It is a point of not knowing. We want to publish work that takes us to that point of not knowing, and then connects us, teaches us, and makes us see and understand the world in new ways.

While our priority will be to writers and subjects connected to Appalachia, we are not limited to those. Above all, we are looking to publish writing and art that engages us through originality, depth, and craft.

Submit now through April 1 at https://bit.ly/47X1vEZ
