Casey Clabough

Clabough was born in Richmond, Virginia, and raised primarily on a farm in Appomattox County, Virginia. However, he attributes his culture to the Appalachian roots of his family, who lived in the Smoky Mountains for over two hundred years and were one of the founding families of Gatlinburg, Tennessee.[1] Clabough currently performs editorial work as series editor of the multi-volume "Best Creative Nonfiction of the South" (Texas Review Press), as executive editor of the James Dickey Review, and as literature section editor of the Encyclopedia Virginia.[2]

Clabough has published over a hundred works in anthologies and periodicals, including the Sewanee Review, Virginia Quarterly Review, and Creative Nonfiction.
