Welcome to Waccamaw, an online literary journal published at Coastal Carolina University.
We take our name from the Waccamaw River, which runs through Conway, South Carolina, home of the university. We publish two issues per year, spring and fall, featuring the best contemporary poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction we can find.
Waccamaw is proud to have published poems, stories, and essays by some of the best authors writing today, including Jack Gilbert, Natasha Trethewey, Paul Allen, Sonny Brewer, Robin Ekiss, Barbara Hamby, Paul Cody, Kevin Wilson, Linda Gregg, David Kirby, Joshua Poteat, Katrina Vandenberg, Rebecca Barry, and Chad Davidson.
Thank you for your visiting our journal. We hope you will find the literary work we’re presenting to be as essential and mysterious as the water that has flowed through Conway since long before the place was given that name. Welcome to Waccamaw.
