Portal del Sol

Author Salon, Fiction, Novels, Editors, Books & More



Water is mutable enough to flow around us, yet so powerful that it can crash and submerge us completely. Coastal Carolina University’s online journal, Waccamaw, named after the Waccamaw River that flows through the university’s hometown, is a study in mysterious clarity. Publishing since 2008, Waccamaw has earned quick credibility as a top-notch online literary source, with stories featured in The Best of the Web. The aesthetic of the site is as calm and clean as a riverfront on a quiet, spring morning. Sit by its banks, though. Peer into the murky waters.  Let the river in you, and you’ll see that its featured fiction, poetry, and CNF are wild, fluid, and as torrid and dangerous as a jilted lover.
