***EXPECTATIONS is CLOSED but we are always accepting fresh submissions and pitches HERE***


DRØME is putting out an open call for submissions around the theme of Expectations. We will review works of all genres: visual, text, boundary-transcending.

You have them; we have them. It is impossible to exist without expectations on the precipice of something, impossible to construct your identity without remembering—or unlearning—the expectations that have been set by institutions, others, yourself. This new year, as you look at the expanse of time ahead, what do you see yourself molding and shaping? What do you want to create, and on what does it depend? What are you waiting for, and what’s holding you back? What boxes will you be working within, deconstructing, or breaking out of? Who will you be?

Submissions are rolling and will close Friday, January 26th at 11:59pm. Send your work to editorial@wearedrome.com with the subject line “Expectations Submission”. We will get back to creators within several days of submission time.
