Special Call for Collaborators for Feature 2020/2021 Print Issue:

Can you fly

Swim to the bottom of the Ocean

Have you died

Killed someone

Morphed into someone else

Been an inanimate object 

Do you know who your loved ones are

Are they just a feeling

Are you just a feeling

How do you make decisions

Are you lucid

Can you orgasm

Fall in love

Meet up, collectively

Walk around

See ghosts

Turn into a ghost

Understand something completely

Get confused about something you thought you understood

Find closure

Go somewhere you thought you would never go

Find something you thought you would never find

Cross paths with imposter cats

We are collecting stories about dreams during COVID-19 in the form of a series of short anonymous interviews. 

Small honorariums provided.
