Founded in 2014, with its debut issue released on February 15, 2015, Cherry Tree: A National Literary Journal @ Washington College is an annual literary magazine featuring poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, and literary shade by emerging and established writers from across the United States, and all over the world. Washington College undergraduates participate in all facets of the journal’s production.
Although the journal is still very young, Cherry Tree has already received national recognition. Poems from the first two issues have been selected for inclusion in both the 2016 and 2017 editions of The Best American Poetry, chosen by editors Edward Hirsch and Natasha Trethewey. Several poems from the first issue were also featured on Verse Daily.
Cherry Tree appears under the imprint of the Literary House Press, the publishing arm of the Rose O’Neill Literary House, a cultural center with a 45-year history of promoting the arts.
