Charles Dickens was obviously not writing about Coastal’s English Division when he penned “A smattering of everything and a knowledge of nothing.”
Coastal’s English Department educators are true masters of all matter English – from grammar to analyses, from literature to creative writing. Each member of the division adds his/her expertise to this conglomerate of thoughtful, caring, and engaging instructors.
Students who come in contact with any one of this group can expect to be challenged to think logically and analytically about what they read and write, to perform at a college level, and to expect future employers to appreciate the skills they learn while under this division’s tutelage.
New River Anthology
The New River Anthology is a great way for students to share their fiction, non-fiction, poetry and artwork and gain community-wide publication. Each year we have student editors work alongside English faculty members selecting pieces, editing drafts and organizing the annual fall anthology reading.
Not just a book-discussion group, the Book-to-Movie Series reads and discusses the book that inspired the movie, followed by a private screening of that film. Two selections a semester mean two chances to participate!
