Submission Guidelines


Submission Guidelines

I print primarily poetry, but also publish a small amount of short short fiction. The genres of fantasy and SF are preferred. I am interested in experimental formats and content, and prefer fantastic horror a la Lovecraft or Blackwood to the blood and gore type. Any SF or fantasy is appropriate if it isn't sappy or trite. If your poem rhymes, be sure that the rhymes are not forced, and that the meter is consistent.
The magazine consists of 20 digest-sized pages with card-stock cover. Publication is thrice yearly, issues are numbered sequentially. Issue #1 was published in January of 1986. Print run 150. Most-recent issue is #116. DN is distributed free to interested libraries.

Poetry & Fiction
Maximum length for poetry or fiction is 2 single-spaced typed pages, but I prefer less than one page. I prefer e-submissions in the body of the message. Send up to five poems. Cover letter not required. PLEASE put your name and address on each poem you submit!
I print 15-30 poems per issue. Buying 1st N.Am. serial rights unless state otherwise. Payment is $12 on acceptance + 1 contributor's copy. Contributors outside North America can instead receive a 3-issue subscription plus 1 copy. DN is a tough market because of the high volume of poetry submissions I receive. Fewer than 5% of submissions are accepted. Response time is commonly 1-3 weeks. Sample print copy for $5; pdf for $1 [paypal to jopnquog@gmail.com].

Artwork
Artwork should be line drawings; no half-tones. Good photocopies OK, but I prefer to receive JPEG's as e-mail attachments. Art should be no larger than 4 1/2 by 7 1/2 inches, but I can reduce it. Payment $12 on acceptance plus 1 copy. I always need covers, and small filler illustrations. Filler illos that are the right size and shape to fill up the bottom of a page are particularly useful. Payment for covers includes an extra copy of the issue.
Send submissions to: dckmdnmag@gmail.com
If you must send snail-mail submissions:
Dreams & Nightmares, 1300 Kicker Rd, Tuscaloosa, AL 35404.
Please address all other correspondence to the e-mail address given above. I will respond promptly to e-mail messages.

WOW!! Methinks Financial Scammer-try, is the fastest flash fiction in the world! Faster even, than a speeding shell game...

(UHUH!!! And dare I say it, Ba-Haw!)

Au contrare, mon frère. Think of it in terms of the universal "shell game", as enacted to lift us off and away from this whirling blue droplet. Something has to do it, be built to do so (unless Elon Musk personally likes you or you've once played footsies--think Old Robert Redford). To do this, monies must fund it, and the device cannot be composed of palm fronds...for this, the security of Unsecured Securities. USD (and FDA-approved), no less!

Shell games, are our friends. Even Kristy McNichol's relative, from "Family", Above, knows that....

My name is Jane Wembli Josh and i live in the USA California and life is worth living right now for me and my family and all this is because of one man sent by GOD to help me and my family, i once had a life filled with sorrow because my first SON needed a kidney transplant and all our savings were going towards his medications and this normally leaves us with no money to pay our bills or even put enough food on our table and our rent was due and no funds to pay these bills and life felt so unfair to me and every night my wife will cry herself to sleep every night until one day, i was browsing through yahoo answers and i saw a striking advert of a man that gives out personal loans and that the offer is opened to all and i have heard so many things about internet scams but at this point of my life, i was very desperate and ready to take any risk and at the end of the day, i applied for this loan and from one step to another, i got my loan within 12 hours through bank transfer and you know, it was all like a dream and i called Rev. Fr. Kevin Doran A Man who is the GOD sent lender i found and said, i have received my loan and he smiled stating that to GOD be the glory and i was so shocked as i have never ever seen anyone with such a GOD fearing and kind heart and today, i am the happiest man on earth because by GOD’S grace, my SON kidney transplant was successful and today he is healthy, i and my family are living very comfortable and happy and if you are in my former situation or in serious and legitimate need of a loan, you can reach this GOD sent lender via consumerloanfirm@gmail.com
