DreamForge Anvil

In all worlds and times, our tales revolve around those individuals and groups who bring meaning and value to the world, whose actions are of consequence, and whose dreams are the vanguard of things to come.

With DreamForge Anvil, we’ll buy and publish great stories that you’ll love  – speculative fiction that is positive and hopeful, demonstrating humanity’s ability to overcome challenges.

More than just the stories, we’ll go behind-the-scenes of our story telling with author and editor notes, giving writers the opportunity to participate the in the process and improve their own writing.


In all worlds and times, our tales revolve around those individuals and groups who bring meaning and value to the world, whose actions are of consequence, and whose dreams are the vanguard of things to come.

Whether you call that Solarpunk, Hopepunk, or just DreamForge  stories, you’ll find them here.

Our goal is to publish fiction and commentary that embody, in one way or another, these essential principles: integrity and decency, compassion and creativity, intelligence and inventiveness, the rule of law and liberty under the law, and the dignity of the individual.

We do not subscribe to hopelessness or futility as a vision of the future or of any setting or situation.

We believe in the power of synergy to unleash the potential of disparate individuals and communities for the betterment of all.

Support Us & Join the DreamForge Adventure!

At DreamForge Magazine, we welcome readers with a passion for positive fantasy and science fiction. Here you will find stories where characters endure, overcome, and embrace that spirit of wonder and discovery through which sentient beings invest the universe with meaning and purpose.

Our outlook is sanguine, faithful to those dreamers and makers who came before us to brave ages far darker than our own, supportive of present idealists who remain indomitable in the face our time’s apocalyptic fears, and hopeful that the principles of compassion, justice, and truth shall endure until the end of time.
