Welcome to Fictive Dream, the online magazine dedicated to the short story. The website has been named with more than just a backward glance to American writer and teacher, John Gardner, whose concept of the fictive dream remains a cornerstone of good writing. Powerful writing ensures that readers never slip out of the fictional world or dream that a writer creates. This is the sort of writing we’re looking to promote here at Fictive Dream.
If you write stories with a contemporary feel that give an insight into the human condition, then we’d like to hear from you. They may be on any subject. They may be challenging, dramatic, playful, exhilarating or cryptic. Above all, they must be well-crafted and compelling.
Fictive Dream is open to submissions from emerging and established writers. Good luck.
