Sadcore Dadwave is an online lit journal that often publishes art, poetry and short fiction by established and emerging alt lit contributors. It is edited by Sian S. Rathore and Paul Askew. It publishes ~10 issues a year and was established in May, 2012. Submissions are read all year round and soon Sadcore Dadwave is coming out with its first nightwhich will be held in Manchester, England. The name 'Sadcore Dadwave' came from an idea that sad dad-rock music should be given a name, and sad dads should be able to have a place where they can read literature that 'relates' to them somehow.
