VOICES FROM THE FIRE (ongoing)
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.
BEDROOM ANATOMY LESSONS: (MARCH 1st 2022)
LOVE, SEX, ROMANCE…everything you dread. Bedroom antics, sexual musings, paranormal erotica of a questionable taste. What did you ultimately learn about yourself? Was it worth it or just a toxic trance?
WORLD ON FIRE: ( JUNE 1ST 2022)
The world’s on fire…literally, pandemic, ecological disasters, dehumanization of the marginalized, the collective and individual thrown into dissarray. It’s the end of the world as we know, we could be fine or not. Utopia? Dystopia? Contemporary observation? Vintage recollections. Set the page on the fire.
ANIMAL MASKS (SEPTEMBER 1st 2022)
Just in the time for the fall…of humankind! World on fire amid the inflictions of bedroom anatomy lessons…do you like Jung? What do you know about totems? How about just doing something wickled, violent and depraved or even hopeful and redeeming in a primal idenity most complimentary or a dreamscape nightmare vision. Pick any side of the ever varying spectrum in the modern animal kingdom both hidden and blatant.
HONKY-TONK ANGELS ( DECEMBER 1ST 2022)
I was really high when I was thinking of an idea for a western anthology…but it might work…think pulp fiction. Country western stuff with some cityfuck twist, I don’t know…if this press actually knew what it was doing would the logo really be a flaming dumpster?
