Oneiromancy is defined as either the ability to predict the future through dreams or to shape the present through magically shaping one's dreams. Here I use the word Oneiromantic to signal one who creates through dream imagery, whether it is poetry pulled directly from dreams or art that uses the symbols one finds in sleep. I'll accept anything that even touches on the idea here, and I'll be including an excerpt from a story I've been working on about those who travel and meet in dreams. This is an easy topic for me to start on, I admit, as this is a common thread for my writings - but it will get the ball rolling.
Last submission accepted will be January 2, 2007. The chapbook will be released on Imbolc, which is February 2nd, 2007.
