Publisher's description: Dogwood: A Journal of Poetry and Prose is an award-winning annual print journal founded in 2001 that publishes fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. Editors select finalists in all three genres to be considered for a fall annual contest featuring a grand prize of $1000. We find ourselves drawn to writing rich in detail, peopled with characters that move like living things, taking place in rooms and towns that smell and taste as real as the places we might have been. NewPages has described us as "highly recommended..." and the Review Review described our content as "well-written and compelling."
Dogwood has published poets such as Elton Glaser, Allison Joseph, Virgil Suarez, and Joshua Mehigan, and fiction writers such as Eric Gabriel Lehman, Nalini Jones, Tom Hazuka, and Gina Ochsner. Judges for the competition have included former U.S. Poet Laureate Robert Pinsky, NEA Chairman Dana Gioia, and Oprah book club author A. Manette Ansay. Work from Dogwood has been selected for The Pushcart Prize Anthology and has been featured on Verse Daily. The digital edition is now also available via LitRagger on iTunes for $3, and you can purchase a single print issue via PayPal or subscribe for $8 a year.
