Kimbel Library Poetry Slam

Welcome back students! When visiting the Kimbel Library this semester, be sure to check out the new poetry written by CCU students. The poetry is framed and hangs on the wall to your right as you enter the library.

These student-authored poems were published by The Paul Rice Poetry Broadside Series. The series is named in honor and memory of Paul Rice, professor of English at Coastal Carolina from 1987 to 2004. If you are interested in submitting your poetry for publication in this series, visit the English Department's website. If you are interested in reading some great poetry, come to the Kimbel Library!
