This theme is inspired by children’s bedtime stories, the comfort and wonder a journey to fantastical realms can bring. Tell us stories that speak warmth and protection, write poetry that can arm for future trial, wrap essays around the desire for escape, and create art that transports to psychedelic dreamscapes. Above all else: craft something of sweet dreams.
