SWEET DREAMS ARE MADE OF THESE...
Who are we
What We Do
We are Ruby and Adam, two writers who started having crazy intense dreams during the Covid-19 lockdown. Turns out, so was everyone else.
Whilst discussing prophetic dreams, literature, and the occult, author Gary Lachman encouraged Ruby to start writing a dream journal (Listen to her podcast BURST to hear the full story on that one, it gets pretty crazy). The dreams took an intense turn as the world slipped into a pandemic, and she began to wonder... were the dreams being affected by the pandemic too?
How far did it go? Was everyone experiencing this?
She reached out to author Adam Attley, and the pair began their collaboration from other ends of the country over Zoom. Which is like, so 2020. They began to archive and create new narratives from their homes in London and Cornwall, creating the Fever Dream Journal.
We are recording people's dreams during the time of coronavirus and creating pieces of original writing based on the themes and images that come out of the world's collected dreams. A real journal and a fictional one, side by side.
