Dearest DDR followers, readers, writers, and lovely creatures all around,
So it’s that time again. Time to take a break so we can get our sh*t together.
And though we won’t be publishing anything new on the site till the end of the summer we will still be reading submissions for fall so please, keep sending us all your goodies! Ladies send us your flash, poetry, art, photography… Send it all.
Also, on a super happy note, we are going to start accepting creative nonfiction! More on that shortly but to give you an idea the guidelines will be the same as flash fiction. Send us up to 3 creative nonfiction stories, each story no more than 1000 words.
We aren’t disappearing. We will be around reading all your fine submissions. And as always, previous contributors, let us know if you have anything going on. A book reading, a forthcoming chapbook, etc. We would love to share the news!
Happy writing & reading friends!

Dearest Dying Dahlia Readers and Writers —
DDR is off to a fabulous start this year! We have been receiving some wonderful submissions and featuring some great interviews with talented women writers in our newest segment, Women Writers We Love.
Speaking of love, let me share some… Dying Dahlia Review just celebrated its 2nd Birthday! *Hooray! Cake for everyone!* I’ve said it once (or a few dozen times) but let me say it again: thank you all for your love and submissions and contributions and for following along. From the beginning, we’ve wanted to feature creative women at their awesome-est (not a word, but just go with it) and we definitely have. DDR is around because of all of you. So thank you dearest readers and writers. Continue reading “Letter from the Editor”
Hello dearest readers!
We are back after our month long vacation AKA drinking pumpkin spice lattes while eating pumpkin spice bread with a scoop of pumpkin spice ice cream and shopping for pumpkin decorations while wearing pumpkin themed shirts.
Just kidding. Kind of. Continue reading “A Note from the Editor”
