Accompanying this post is the first electronic glimpse of the art that graces the cover of Dogwood 16: Barbara Takenaga’s breathtaking “Night Painting.” Subscribers have already received their print copy, but those who would like to order their own, or order an electronic copy for immediate deliver, can do so here.
Reading the work published in the previous issue is a great way to decide which pieces of your own work might be best to enter into the ongoing 2018 Dogwood Literary Prizes and/or submit to the journal. Though judges rotate every year, the editorial staff, which reads submissions blind and prepares finalists for those judges, remains consistent, so picking up a copy (or e-copy) of Dogwood is a good idea. There’s still time to do so before the September 5th deadline. Read more about our contest guidelines–and submit–here.
