Editorial Focus

Dream of Things publishes memoirs, anthologies of creative nonfiction, and other nonfiction. Our anthologies are intended to fill the gap between popular anthologies that publish stories that are “short and sweet" (sometimes so saccharin-sweet that they are hard to swallow), and the Best American Essays, which are longer-form. Our goal is to publish writing that is short and deep. With depth comes authenticity. The result is stories that are easier to swallow because they are authentic, and easier to digest because they average 1,250 words in length.

Tips From the Editor

Dream of Things seeks interesting memoirs. We also seek creative nonfiction for anthologies on a variety of topics. Visit the “workshop” section of our website for a list of current topics. Saying Goodbye, our first anthology, is an example of the type of creative writing we are looking for.
Our goal is to publish “distinctive voices, meaningful books.” Submissions can be 500 to 2,500 words long. We accept previously published material, and multiple and simultaneous submissions.
Creative nonfiction to us means true stories told in a creative and compelling manner. Most of all, it should be a story. Tell us the story of a meaningful or humorous experience, or the story of an interesting or colorful person. It’s not enough to simply share your insights and observations.
