Look out for Issue 31 this Summer

Cover DC 30

Dream Catcher 30’s striking cover, a reproduction of Home Wrecked by Geordie, is one of a number of images featured in this issue by artists who have experienced homelessness. These pictures were created in response to an Arts Council England funded Out of the Box project which offered the artists a range of art skills from traditional to digitally innovative. Dream Catcher is pleased to further support the artists and the project by including samples of their distinctive and challenging work.

In selecting this issue’s poetry and prose the editorial team was again spoilt for choice.  The short stories range from the surreal world of Eve Kalyvas The Tail to the all too real drama of Joseph Desmond’s Ragdoll and the descent into horror of Graham High’s Swarm Sunday.

And then there are the poems… Superb pieces by established poets, exciting contributions from newcomers, a modern translation of an 18th/19th century German piece in parallel text, love, death, rage.  Our contributors come from all over the UK, from Europe and the Americas, all of them united in a love of language and of what words, in skilled hands, can reveal.

Stairwell Books and the Dream Catcher editorial team, led by John Gilham, are proud to present the best of contemporary verse, prose and illustration in the 30th issue of the magazine.

Available now from our bookshop or from Inpress Books.

Dream Catcher magazine, other Dream Catcher Books publications, and books by the Editor of Dream Catcher, Paul Sutherland, Seven Earth Odes, Spires and Minarets, April Renga, are available at BeetrootBooks.
