Submissions are accepted continuously on a rolling basis, as Fever Dream is not currently divided into issues. We will try to give you a response as soon as possible, but do not query until at least one month after the date of submission (though you may receive a response much sooner). Unfortunately, we are not currently a paying market.

Please see the about page for general notes on what we’re looking for. Keep in mind that we do not read blind, and have a commitment to publishing young/emerging authors as well as authors of marginalized identities.
