Dreams are an important part of our lives, both waking and sleeping.  Some people never remember their dreams, others live by them.
Have you ever kept a dream journal?  Do you have recurring dreams which return over many years time? To what extent is your life informed by your nighttime dreams?  Do you dream of utopia and happily ever after, or are you plagued with nightmares? 
Fascination with dreams goes back a long way, and has always been part of the human experience. The oldest recorded nightmare dates back 4,000 years, to ancient Egypt. The Dream Manual, written around 1220 B.C., helped everyday Egyptians decipher their nightly dreams. Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung connected dreams with our internal lives and helped us understand the hidden meanings.
In addition to actual nighttime dreams, we love to daydream, to dream of our futures, or to dream of a better world.  There is no limit to the power of our dreams!    
We invite you to share your dream world with us in this Writing Event. You may write about anything, as long as you include some form of the word “dream”.   
As with all our Events,  you may submit fiction or non-fiction. In addition to writing a story, you may write an essay, memoir, poem, or any genre that meets our family-friendly guidelines.  Each submission must be 350 words or less, but you can send as many submissions as you wish. 
Ensure your submission follows these rules:
  • Correct length (350 words or less)
  • Correct spelling and grammar
  • Family-friendly content
Be sure to include some form of the word "dream"!

    What a wonderful idea, Team! Your theme of Dream already makes a stream of thoughts appear on the screen of my mind. Even a scene with a screaming queen eating green beans with ice-cream from a clean machine would be possible. I mean, it seems extreme, but in a dream anything can be seen, right?

    Sharing a Post

    Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

    Actually, this is a voting security feature. During public voting, only club members can read posts submitted for that contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!
