Dreamers Magazine Issue 16 Now Available

Announcing Dreamers Magazine Issue 16…

The Oct. 7 terror attack on Israel and the resulting declaration of war against Hamas has delivered a terrifying reminder of just how quickly safety can turn to peril, tranquility to chaos. The tremendous losses on both sides of the conflict have sent waves of emotions around the globe, touching everyone from distant observers to those intimately connected to the region. In these challenging times, when there is so much anger and sadness and despair, what else is there to do but hope that rational minds win out and peace prevails?

As I think about Issue 16 in the context of current global events, I’m reminded of the impact of storytelling in reflecting our world’s complexities, provoking thought, and stirring deep emotions.

Dreamers Magazine Issue 16

Issue 16’s feature story, “Irish Exit” by Alexis MacIssac, is a poignant nonfiction piece that explores the intricacies of human relationships and the impact of our actions on others. It’s a testament to the transformative power of storytelling. This issue also presents a diverse collection of stories and poems that capture both the beauty and complexity of the human experience. Discover the winners and honourable mentions from our annual flash contest (pages 3-7), alongside the captivating winning stories from the 2024 Pen Parentis Fellowship for New Parents. Congratulations to all of this year’s talented winners!
