Here you will find everything creative and nothing dull! Our aim is to publish the creative works of Dawson students in the Arts, Literature and Communication program in order to bring about more beauty and colour into the world, all with the power of words.

Cheers,

About Us

Since 2001, Dawson’s Creations journal has been an annual anthology of students’ creative and academic works. It serves as a yearbook of sorts for each graduating class in the Literature Profile, but also welcomes work from all students in ALC courses.

Edited by graduating students in the Literature Profile, the journal features essays, poetry, short fiction, dramatic pieces, letters, personal reflections, photography, drawings, and other original artwork, individually or collaboratively authored… so everything, really!

For aspiring writers and artists, the journal offers a valuable opportunity to submit academic and creative pieces and benefit from the feedback of an editorial team.
