A Welcome to Waccamaw Issue 10

                                    Dan Albergotti, Editor

Welcome to the tenth issue of Waccamaw, an online literary journal published at Coastal Carolina University. This issue was launched October 31, 2012—the 217th birthday of John Keats.

I want to thank Joe Bueter, Caroline Cahill, and Hastings Hensel for their assistance in selecting the poetry for this issue, as well as Jason Bordt for the work he did assisting fiction editor Jason Ockert.

In this issue, we are pleased to offer the sixth in a series of features on contemporary authors: “How the Sausage Is Made,” a collection of five essays by previous Waccamaw creative nonfiction contributors, discussing elements of craft in the essays they had previously published in the journal. Thank you to Joe Oestreich for organizing and editing this feature.

Our next period for accepting unsolicited submissions is February 1-28, 2013. Interested authors should consult our submission guidelines. Please note that we only accept submissions online via our Submission Manager. Submissions sent by any other method cannot be considered or acknowledged.

I know it’s a cliché to say such a thing, but I’m going to say it anyway: It seems like yesterday that we launched Waccamaw, and it really is hard to believe that we’ve now published ten issues. We’re proud of what we’ve built, and we’re proud of this tenth issue. We hope you’ll enjoy it. And we hope you’ll enjoy the next ten. And the twenty after that. And (May you live so long!) the many, many that follow as the river flows on.
