CCCC Storytelling Showcase

"There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you." - Maya Angelou

The CCCC Storytelling Showcase promotes the art of storytelling and highlights the amazing work done by students as they prepare to enter college-transfer courses. The event takes place every spring in in the Student Center and is open to the public. Keep an eye on Coastal's website and social media feeds for details about the next Storytelling Showcase.

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.
