Volume 7: 2007

Volume 7, Spring 2007

In this volume of Dogwood: Journal of Poetry and Prose, we are taken from 1941 New York to war-torn Iraq to a small American hospital with a recently emigrated doctor to everywhere in between. The paintings provided by Holly Trostle Brigham are vivid and lush, telling the tales of famous literary women in a way never seen before. The authors and poets whose works reside within are more than worthy of the many accolades and awards they have been given throughout the years, and we wish them all the best in their continued literary endeavors.
