Editorial Focus

The editors encourage interested authors to read previous issues of Waccamaw before submitting. Our only clear editorial criterion is excellence. Beyond that, there are few things we can say to describe what we’re looking for. We value work that is mysterious, but not that which is needlessly obscure. We appreciate ambiguity, but not utter meaninglessness. We like clarity and do not equate it with simplicity. We believe writing devoid of image is devoid of art. We find that our aesthetic beliefs are undergoing constant revision.

Tips From the Editor

Please note that submissions are only accepted via Waccamaw's online submission manager system during two annual reading periods: February 1-28 and August 1-31. No email submissions, please.
