Launch Event

Dogwood held our first launch event on Thursday April 18th at the Fairfield University Bookstore.  The event was organized by our student editors and attended by the journal’s staff as well as members of the university community.  Cover artist, Gordon Skinner, former Dogwood author, Claire Zoghb, literary editor, Gabby Gabby, as well as undergraduate student writers shared their work.

Cover artist Gordon Skinner shared his process in creating the journal’s cover art, entitled “Jesus Piece.”  The artist also took audience questions about his aesthetic and creative techniques.

Claire Zoghb, winner of the Poetry Prize in the 2008 issue of Dogwood read her prize winning poem “Apples,” as well as several of her more recent pieces.

Gabby Gabby, editor of the Illuminati Girl Gang, read several of her original poems.

Finally, five undergraduate student writers, Kaylee Brunelle, Pedro Ramirez, Nicole Heller, Zoe Capobianco and Chris Schelzi read original pieces of poetry, fiction and nonfiction.
