Please enjoy our Year 1 Anthology containing all 119 poems, stories and essays published in Dreamers Creative Writing's first year.
Dreamers is dedicated to all the different ways to write creatively from writing for writing’s sake, to using creative writing in academic research, to writing as therapy. We take our name from a lecture published in 1908, called “Creative Writers and Daydreaming” where Freud compared dreaming to art. He writes, “A piece of creative writing, like a daydream, is a continuation of, and a substitute for, what was once the play of childhood” (28). He goes on to say that “myths, legends and fairy tales” are the “wishful fantasies of whole nations, the secular dreams of youthful humanity” (Freud, 28). Our name also has personal meaning. When our Editor-in-Chief, Kat McNichol, was a teenager, her dad owned Dreamers Gallery, a small art gallery based in Lion’s Head, Ontario. Do you have a story to tell? We can help!
