Submit your work to Lucent Dreaming: We are looking for prose and poetry to publish in our For a Friend anthology, a giftable collection of writing for oneself or a friend. We are open to a wide range of genres and styles that fit the theme. As a guide, we think we are looking for pieces that range from words of encouragement to life advice-styled poetry and prose, to love letters you might send to a friend, i.e. writing that is a source of comfort, inspiration, learning and escape. We are looking especially for work from writers of colour and working class writers living in the UK.

The submission window for the anthology is open until May 15th. We encourage you to read our previous publications to get a feel for the style of writing we enjoy and give you the best chance. If you do not have access to a copy of Lucent Dreaming via your library and have no or very low income, please email to receive a free copy.
