deLuge Journal Issue: Fall 2017

deLuge is an online literary and arts journal devoted to the wealth of creativity that arises from dreams - directly or indirectly - and from the deeply felt/experienced life. We present works that catches the breath, that resonates like the low hum of a bass cello. Work that dazzles slant or straight on, that brings us to epiphany, to the cliff’s edge or that rises through quiet presence. However each piece sings, we hope that it leaves you feeling the reverb long after each note finishes. deLuge publishes strong, passionate pieces that excite and challenge. We accept work from new, emerging and established writers. Please see our submissions guidelines on our website at www. before sending us your work.
