The DWL Journal (or Dream Write Literary Journal) was first published in September 2016. One additional volume has been published since then – in April 2017. Both are currently available on Amazon.

In July 2017, The DWL Journal’s parent company, DWL Services, LLC announced 4 new volumes of the publication to be released each year, with the following submission deadlines: September 15th; December 15th; March 15th; and June 15th.

The DWL Journal accepts submissions in the following categories:

Short Story (any genre)

Poetry (any topic)

Creative Non-Fiction (any topic)

To submit, email sandysteele@dwleditingservices.com with the Subject: DWL Journal Submissions

In September 2019, it was announced that submissions could receive comments and suggestions for improvement for an optional $25 review fee per piece. This fee will cover the time and effort our staff puts in to develop each volume of the journal.
