The Dream Network Journal was published in printed form from 1982 to 2015, a place for people to share the wonder and mystery of dreams. Thanks to our crowdfunding supporters, this archive offers all issues of the DNJ for download, and reproduces many articles in blog form.
Below, you can download each volume as a .zip file, or download each issue individually from the list of images. If you'd like to look up an individual author or article, there's a growing authors page here, and a (not-quite-complete) list of Dream Network articles in spreadsheet form.
Rather than republishing these PDFs online, please just link to this site. We also ask you not to publish the articles in the journals, unless you have the permission of the author (or you are the author, in which case, the rights are yours!)

We'd like to personally thank Kelly Bulkeley, whose donation really made this campaign possible, and all the 'super supporters' of the campaign: Luigi Sciambarella, Evelyn Duesbury, Patrick Rathje, Harriette Mandeville, Robert Krumhansl and Dani Tuazon, as well as Arthur Strock, Robert ("Paco") Mitchell, Rosemary Watts-Dreyer, Patti Allen, Mary Bronk, Spoken Stone, and all the supporters who made this a reality. For their donations as well as providing providing their personal copies of publications for scanning, special thanks to Dick McLeester and Marlene King.
