Classes & Workshops
About deLuge: 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 work that catches the breath, resonates like the low hum of a bass cello, dazzles slant or straight on, and brings us to epiphany, 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 the final note.
deLuge publishes strong, passionate pieces that excite and challenge. We accept work from new, emerging, and established writers.
Co-founders / Co-editors: Karla Van Vliet and Sue Scavo
