Non fiction writing for The Abandoned Dreams Collective
Deadline: 30/01/2022 | Published: 27/11/2021 | City: N/A | Country: Singapore | Nirmitee Mehta
The Abandoned Dreams Collective is a newsletter about lives unlived, dreams only dreamt, realities unrealized.
Welcome to The Abandoned Dreams Collective!
We’re part newsletter, part indie zine, part mystical neverland.
Here, for a few moments each week, I want readers to forget everything else for a little while and allow themselves to be led into someone else’s life and feel intensely the same complicated blend of euphoria, regret and magic that the author did when they dreamt that dream.
I’m looking for non-fiction writing of 1500-1800 words. If you have something in another format that you feel strongly about, feel free to make your case for why it fits perfectly within this project and I’ll keep an open mind. I will be sending out an essay every week by email to subscribers.
Here’s what I’m looking for from the pieces:
I want it to read a little like you're spinning, like you're losing a little bit of control over reality and descending into this alternate world that you've conjured up.
I want it to feel like a half forgotten dream you wake up from at 4:47 am, where you hold on to the ephemeral moments that you remember in snatches and flashes and try to slip back to them before they disappear into nothingness that never was.
I want people reading it to feel seen and feel okay to sometimes want something so much you start living in the world where you've willed it to happen, your imagination acting as a fuzzy blanket lulling you to remain there.
If you have that, I hope you’ll consider submitting to us.
