Over the last seven years, from August through the end of the school year, Claflin’s English Department has sponsored a themed, cross-university literary contest. In 2019, in cooperation with the Art Department, we asked students to submit their best works of poetry, fiction, nonfiction and journal cover art. We awarded first, second, and third place winners in the four categories. Along with the award winners, our editors selected the best of the rest and published the collection in our Mary McCloud Bethune-themed student journal: the 2020 Edisto River Review. This edition, our very first 100% student-content edition, is hot off the press. In it you’ll find one hundred thirty-one pages with thirty-eight submissions by twenty-nine students from across Claflin’s departments and schools. If these works don’t knock your socks off, I don’t know what will. Enjoy!
