Dream World Defenders Call to Write Challenge


Award-Winning Author Kathleen J. Shields is proud to announce her highly anticipated “Dream World Defenders” chapter book for ages 8 and up. At the end of the book she included a ‘Call to Write’ for all children in hopes that they would use their highly active imaginations to end the story.  She had hoped this would be an excellent creative writing assignment for classrooms, but Erin Go Bragh Publishing Company has taken that dream a step further.
We call it the Dream World Defenders Call to Write Challenge – and we are encouraging readers ages 8-15 to finish the story and submit it to us for publication.



Step 1:   READ Dream World Defenders (paperback or ebook)
Step 2:   WRITE Your Own Ending (short story no more than 1500 words)

Step 3:   SUBMIT it and your signed release with parent’s permission below.


At the end of the year, we will combine the best stories into a collaboration book which will be available in print so every child can see their name and story published. There is no entry fee or charge for publication. Author retains all rights to their story. No purchase necessary.
