Welcome to the seventh issue of Waccamaw, an online literary journal published at Coastal Carolina University.
This issue was launched April 23, 2011. I wish to extend thanks to Joe Bueter and Hastings Hensel for their assistance in selecting the poetry for this issue, as well as to Jason Bordt and M. F. Fowler for the work they did assisting fiction editor Jason Ockert.
In this issue, we are pleased to offer the third in a series of features on contemporary authors with Joe Oestreich’s interview of David Shields. You will also find in the News & Features section the first four in a new series of videos presenting Waccamaw authors reading their work by the river that gives our journal its name.
Our next period for accepting unsolicited submissions runs July 15 through August 31. Interested authors should consult our submission guidelines. Please note that we only accept submissions online via our Submission Manager.
We hope you will enjoy this issue and once again find the literary work we’re presenting to be as essential and mysterious as the water of the Waccamaw River that has flowed through Conway, South Carolina, home of Coastal Carolina University, since long before the area bore any of those names.
