Dogwood: A Journal of Poetry and Prose has begun to accept submission for its 2017 literary prizes.  Guidelines for the contest, which begins officially on July 1, are available below by genre.  More information about Dogwood and our new issue can be found here.

Causway Lit, the online version of Dogwood, will soon be accepting submissions on its own site and is no longer accepting submissions here.  Those who submitted to Causeway Lit through this site will be contacted by the editors as their decisions are made.  More information about Causeway Lit can be found here.
