Since 2010, Mason’s Road has been the focal point for many graduate students within the MFA in Creative Writing program at Fairfield University. The students gained professional publishing experience, worked with outstanding students and faculty, and discussed craft with well-established authors around the country. Mason’s Road published its 11th and final issue in July, 2015. Due to some unfortunate events, Mason’s Road had to close its doors to the literary world.
In order for the students in the Fairfield MFA to continue gaining publishing experience, Dogwood Literary Journal, a sponsored journal with Fairfield University, decided to create a digital component of the already existing journal. That’s where we come in!
Welcome to Causeway Lit! We will focus on monthly book reviews, craft essays, drama submissions, interviews, and publish digital works from Dogwood Literary Journal.
Causeway Lit holds a special place in our hearts. For MFA students who attend the residencies on Enders Island in Mystic, CT, many of us dive into a spiritual oasis as soon as we cross the causeway onto the island. For us, this speaks as a positive change for our writing community within Fairfield University, and we hope you enjoy our bridge to something new.
