The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful

Dreams & Nightmares - Poetry (Go to Fiction)

Note: as of May 10, 2020, there is another almost-identical Dreams & Nightmares site that is no longer under the control of this publication and should be disregarded.

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.
