Cherry Tree: A National Literary Journal @ Washington College

The name Cherry Tree honors George Washington who, in 1782, gifted “the College at Chester” 50 guineas, consented to serve on its Board, and gave the educational institution permission to use his name. In the American imagination, George Washington is a figure who has come to represent both truth-telling and mythmaking. The famous story of the cherry tree—I can’t tell a lie, Pa; you know I can’t tell a lie. I did cut it with my hatchet.—reminds us that there is truth even in invention, that even apocrypha can convey the facts of life.

The Christian Science Monitor

Since 1908, The Home Forum has been a section of The Christian Science Monitor dedicated to nonfiction and poetry. The object of the Monitor is (in the words of its founder, Mary Baker Eddy) "to injure no man, but to bless all mankind." The Monitor is a balanced news-gathering operation with its own network of reporters; it is not a church organ. The Home Form section attempts to amuse, educate, inspire, delight, engage, comfort, enlighten. It's a conversation with a well-educated and compassionate friend. The section also hosts the Monitor's single, clearly labeled, religious article.

“CONTRA EQUUS NIVEUS” (“Against the White Horse”) is a poetic attempt to advance our sight beyond the imaginative blockade of what the prophet Ezekiel and the poet Blake called the “Covering Cherub,” through publishing compositions that act against the imposing egoism and phenomenological limitations of our fallen world. As an attempt to defeat that age-old conqueror, we consider the first Horseman of the Apocalypse riding gloriously into the empire he has both built himself and was sent to destroy.

Dewpoint

Dewpoint is a production of the English honor society at the University of Alabama. We are an award-winning print journal publishing both emerging and established writers. Our only requirement is innovation: the pieces we publish either use old forms to present new ideas or use new forms to reinvigorate old thoughts; they either allow new voices to be heard or force old speakers to change topics. As a product of Tuscaloosa, AL, Dewpoint provides an opportunity for writers to publish their work in a print journal in conversation with some of the most exciting contemporary authors.

We love to laugh and bask in the unexpected joy of reading a well-developed, complex piece of literature. That said, don't try to Wow us. Show us your awesomeness.
