About the Journal

Portals is Cape Fear Community College’s literary and arts journal, featuring poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, and two-dimensional visual art. Literary and art submissions are open to our students, faculty, and staff at CFCC. Additionally, literary submissions are now open to all NC undergraduate college students.  CFCC’S English faculty and student editors work together to create and design the magazine, process and select the submissions, and practice editing and publishing. 

The editors of Portals believe that the arts uplift, educate, and create meaning in our lives. We believe in the tapestry of diverse voices and visions that creates a community, and at the heart of community is sharing.  We also seek to enhance North Carolinians’ lives by having free access to a quality literary and arts magazine while continuing CFCC’s reputation as a student-focused, academic institution with an emphasis on quality writing and creative expression.
