December 15th Deadline

The deadline for the next volume of the DWL Journal is fast approaching. Those who submitted to the last volume have been notified that due to a low submission rate, we are combining the entries to create volume 3.

In other news, our parent company – Dream Write Learn Services, LLC will be hosting the first annual Dream Write Literary Symposium on March 30th-31st. For ticket information visit:

Starting in 2018, we will be introducing themes to our journal. We will still have open submissions, but we will be including a section in the journal dedicated to the theme of the journal. A schedule of themes and guidelines will be posted in January.

September 15th Deadline

Today is the deadline for the fall edition of the DWL Journal. If you haven’t submitted your piece(s), I suggest you do so before 11:59 pm tonight.

Any submissions that come in after midnight, will automatically be put up for consideration for the winter edition.

In other news, we will be attending the League of Utah Writers Conference, October 6-7th. Come stop by our booth and purchase previous editions of the journal.

One other thing, we are going to try to have an answer by the end of the month as to who got into the journal and who needs to work on their pieces before publishing. Thank you!
