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 is comprised of Dream Pop Journal, a biannual online literary journal, and Dream Pop Press, its small press arm that published its first set of chapbooks in Fall of 2019. 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.
