Dream Catcher 37 features  poems from poets living with hearing loss, or autism, with blindness or suffering prejudice against who they are. Powerful work by Tanvir Ratul, Becca Miles, Imogen Godwin and Donna Williams.   We welcome the added diversity these poets bring to our pages.
Elsewhere, Dream Catcher 37  includes several reworkings of traditional tales: Eleanor Porter examines The Twelve Dancing Princesses; Linda Lee Welch tackles Little Red Riding Hood and Charlotte McCormac goes inside out through the Mirror on the Wall. And, as you would expect, there are poems born of  Rage , Fear, Love, Humour, Schooldays, Nature, Cruelty, Mystery, Vengeance, Philosophy, Illness and Death. What more could you wish for!

Reviews of books by Paula McLain, Pam Zinnemann-Hope, Miller Oberman and Robyn Bolam.

Increased subscriptions have allowed us to include full colour images of this issue’s artist, Freya Horsley, and we hope to be able to continue to do so in the future.

Read the review of this issue by playwright Claire Booker. “This is a lively collection of poetry, fiction and artwork on the big themes of love, vengeance, nature, mystery, illness and death (among others!)... what a lovely inter-weaving of featured artist Freya Horsely’s boldly impressionistic and colourfully dexterous work.” Click here to see the full review.”
