illustrate that concept with stories from those who have experienced life
changing insight and guidance from their dreams first hand. IASD is
therefore planning on publishing a book of dream stories and lessons by

IASD is planning to publish a book “Dreams that Change Our Lives” and is presently inviting your life changing dream stories through our website, with a deadline of June 1, 2015. What is new is that we have now formed an agreement with the Chicken Soup for the Soul series to support a more near term publication called Dreams and Premonitions, which also is based on a collection of inspirational dream stories as well as premonitions. Their deadline however is very close – March 15 – so if you wish to submit to that one as well, please act now.
We are delighted about being involved in both of these efforts which support our mission of promoting the importance of dreams in changing our lives. Submission to one does not preclude submission to the others so we invite you to submit your story to both, which may improve the chances of your story being told.
To submit to the IASD book go to www.asdreams.org and click on the “Dreams that Change Our Lives” icon on the home page (see sidebar for more information).
To submit to the Chicken Soup go to www.chickensoup.com and select the “submit your story” link then chose Dreams and Premonitions in the “Book Title” drop down box.
