Dream Pop Journal publishes quarterly issues in January, April, July, and October. We are open for year-round submissions and will include the very best pieces we receive between issue release dates.Anything received by the 1st of each of our publication months will be considered for that season's issue, and each issue will be released on the last day of the publication month. So just remember to submit by the 1st and expect the issue to appear at the end of the month. Anything received after the 1st will automatically be considered for the next season's issue. We welcome submissions from marginalized voices, and we are especially interested in publishing work from emerging writers working in experimental, non-narrative forms. Please send us your very best strange utterings, hybrid works, collaborative pieces, visual poetry, collages, and linguistic inventions. We hope that you will challenge the limits of what literature can be and that you will share your results with us.
POETRY: Please submit three to five poems (combined maximum of 15 pages) at one time.
PROSE (Fiction or Creative Non-Fiction): Please submit up to three prose pieces (combined maximum of 6 pages) to us at one time. We are mainly interested in micro/flash fiction and will not read any submissions that are above the 6-page limit.
VISUAL ART: Please submit up to five pieces at one time.ALL SUBMISSIONS:
