Medicine for a Nightmare is a publishing house. Its main intention is to create community by sharing ideas and experiences with mixed-media objects during an era of separation. It hopes to be a bridge and facilitate connection, as we scatter across space and time.
We set out to curate a collection of thoughts and expressions to be part of a larger conversation, which begins with our first release in January 2021, Part One. Part One is a collection of essays, poetry, short stories, photography, and other visual art from a unique selection of 43 characters from many walks of life, age groups, and cultural backgrounds. It's presented in a perfect-bound paperback book that comes with a 2-hour long compilation consisting of mostly exclusive instrumental music from 23 different artists.
The second installment of this series, Part Two releases in October 2021. We asked all of the contributors, "what brings one to see another day?" The results may not be what you expect.
We are in the planning stages for a variety of mixed-media releases for 2022, including the next part of the conversation titled Part Three. The theme of Part Three is ego reduction. If you would like to submit a piece for consideration, get in touch by using the form on the contact page.
