My dreams are low
They’re sick and must be drossed
They’re young girl’s dreams

See’n saw bounce me back to you? Will you?
See’n saw bounce me back to you? Will you?
Oh will you?

-Cocteau Twins, “Fotzepolitic”


Dream Pop Press is comprised of Dream Pop Journal, a quarterly online literary journal, and the small press arm that will begin accepting chapbook submissions in 2018. Dream Pop seeks to make space for non-narrative, linguistically inventive writing. We are interested in lyric memoirists, cross-genre experimenters, fearless inventors, and poets who dream in made-up languages.




Isobel O’Hare (Founding Editor) is a Pushcart-nominated poet and essayist. She is the author of the chapbooks Wild Materials (Zoo Cake Press, 2015) and The Garden Inside Her (Ladybox Books, 2016). Two of her poems appeared in the anthology A Shadow Map (Civil Coping Mechanisms Press, 2017).

O’Hare received an MFA in Poetry from the Vermont College of Fine Arts. She has also been the recipient of awards from Split This Rock and The Helene Wurlitzer Foundation of New Mexico.
