The issue will come out in August. We’d love to read your surrealist stories and your realist rhymes, your hopes and your dreams, your tales of dreamers and The Dreamers. As ever, we are seeking creativity and flair in all genres: humour, thrillers, family sagas, magic realism, melodrama and tragedy.
