Submit writing to Dreamers Creative Writing!

We’re looking for short stories, poems, personal essays or excerpts (that stand alone) from any genre of writing. We’re willing to consider any form of writing that is well-written and from the heart. We especially love writing that has some connection to writing for wellness – narrative medicine, medical memoir, writing the self, healing writing, etc. Previously published pieces are okay, as long as they are currently available for repeat publication. We accept submissions via submittable and pay authors a one-time $20 honorarium.

Read these examples to see what we like:

  • Creative non-fiction: Three Hots and a Cot
  • Poem: Jax Teller
  • A Poem for Writers
  • Poem: Sick of Dancing
  • Fiction: The Librarian

Love writing contests?

We’ve compiled lists of some of the best Canadian contests run by literary publications to submit writing to:

  • 15 Canadian Creative Non-Fiction Contests
  • 5 Places to Submit Flash Fiction in Canada
  • 10 Poetry Contests Open to Canadians
