Dream Pop Journal: Now Seeking Submissions

Written by Ella Peary | August 3, 2017

A brand new online quarterly of experimental writing, Dream Pop Journal, is now seeking submissions for their first issue. Their style is akin to that of songwriters such as Liz Fraser and the Cocteau Twins, and the composer Wim Mertens. They like non-narrative writing, and they admire artists who transcend formal expectations to create languages all their own. They are looking for hybrid works, collaborative pieces, visual poems, collages, and all other unusual utterings and literary inventions.

Dream Pop Journal will be published four times a year, in January, April, July, and October. They accept submissions year-round. They are especially interested in featuring work by emerging authors, and they welcome submissions from marginalized voices. Submitting authors can expect a response within about 30 days, though response times may vary. Writers may submit as often as they like, but should wait for a response to each submission before submitting again.

Poets may submit three to five poems. Fiction and nonfiction authors may submit up to three pieces. Submissions in all genres should be fifteen pages or fewer. All submissions should include a brief bio, and submitting authors may choose to include a cover letter as well.

Dream Pop Journal accepts submissions via email, but not online or by post. They accept simultaneous submissions, but ask that authors notify them immediately if their work is published elsewhere. They do not accept previously published work.
