The Appalachian Chronicle is a periodical covering a broad range of topics. We have a preferential concern for the poor, vulnerable, marginalized and disenfranchised in Central and Southern Appalachia. As such, our reporting is focused on energy and the environment, covering the fossil fuel industry, sustainability, and grassroots movements within the region working to protect nature. We believe that the Arts are the universal language of peace. Music, art, theatre, sculpture, poetry and other creative expressions help to transcend our differences and expand our outlook, so the Arts, too, are an important part of our reporting and feature articles.

Though we are a for-profit company, we are a Social Enterprise. We seek to maximize profits only after assessing how our work benefits society and the environment. Our profits are then used to educate or serve some other social need.
