The Dogwood Journal is an online magazine produced by Dogwood Media Solutions based out of Montgomery, Alabama. Our goal is to tell stories about life and experiences here in Alabama utilizing user driven content and stories from our staff.

We encourage people to submit family friendly stories and high quality photography using our content submissions page.

Executive Staff

, About, Dogwood Journal

Beth Gillem

Managing editor

As managing editor, Beth is the driving force behind most of the content you see on this site. If she didn’t write it, she’s had a hand in finding, curating, or directing the writing of it. Beth is also an accomplished photographer having owned a photography business for many years. 

In addition to managing the Dogwood Journal, Beth makes sure that the client experience at Dogwood Media Solutions is like no other. 

When she’s not working at Dogwood you’ll find her at home making a creative project with her kids (that’ll probably end up featured here on the Journal) and being a good wife to her husband Cully.
