but we’ll be returning April 2023.
VOICES FROM THE FIRE (starting April 2023-September 2023)
DFP’s ongoing anthology series VOICES FROM THE FIRE…ideally the goal is one poet, one prose writer and visual artist a week. Eventually all posts featured on the site are published in a tangible anthology. Please include a bio pic with your submission or an accompanying image for your post. Guidelines can be found on the about page as well as the bottom of this page. VOICES is designed to give those seldom heard or never heard from at all a voice, though Dumpster Fire Press considers all voices, no bio is necessary as all voices are considered equal.
WE MAY HAVE MISSED THE OPPORTUNITY FOR A WINTER ANTHOLOGY THIS YEAR…BUT WE GOT SOME THINGS GOING ON…
MONSTERS CHAINSAWS CIGARETTES (April-Septemebr 2023)
Pulp title…hardboiled horror, crime, fantasy tales and art. An ongoing book in which the frequency will depend on contributions…. A 64 page quarterly? Bi-monthly periodical? We haven’t decided. The only requirements being your work must consist of one of three things: A MONSTER ELEMENT: villain, creature, situation. Have at it. CHAINSAW ELEMENT- mutilation, violence, go ahead and get bloody disgusting. CIGARETTE ELEMENT: some sort of smoking or vice. People like villains, violence and vice…what’s your problem?
If all goes well, we might even be able to pay on this one…
POLICE STATE (DEADLINE0 JULY 2ND)
It’s a police a state! Police reform? Abuse of power? Anti-fascist? Pro-fascist? Send us your bloody jackbooted freedom touting and/or repressive poetry, prose and art. Embrace crime. Kiss the ring of authoritarianism. Peace is love. Freedom is opression. Incarceration themed work is most definitely encouraged. No more drug war.
(Cover by Paul Warren)
HIGH(DEADLINE SEPTEMBER 20TH)
An anthology dedicated to to true crime and drugs. Mainly drugs…tell us, show us, your zaniest most manic drug fueled inspired stories, essays and poems. It’s cool if you’re sober and want to convey the struggle of addiction too…Dry-drunk narcs shaming for people for trying whatever they can to treat their trauma as a way for themselves to get “high” in the most fucked up manner will not be considered.
