The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful

Fever Dream



Description
Fever Dream is a new online literary journal of maniac mutterings, half-remembered hallucinations, and all manner of stories that burrow their way into your brain when the clock strikes midnight. This doesn’t mean that we are strictly a horror journal (though horror submissions are enthusiastically welcomed), more that we look for work with a particular sense of odd and alluring darkness.

In particular, we keep a special eye out for stories that explore mental illness/neurodivergence through a fantastical lens.

Give us your magical realism, your slipstream, your surrealism, your just plain weird sh*t… on one condition: as weird as you get, there always needs to be at least a degree of emotional sincerity. After all, dreams tend to be some of our most vulnerable and revealing moments. Give us a piece of your heart, if you will. We promise we’ll take good care of it.
