Chicken Soup for the Soul Needs Submissions

Here’s your chance to submit a story or poem to a book in the Chicken Soup for the Soul series. Anybody can submit a story or poem, but there are rules to follow. Chicken Soup stories are inspirational, true stores told in the first person. Be sure to check out the submissions guidelines and make sure your work complies. I’d hate to see good work overlooked because of a technicality.

Here are the upcoming book themes and deadlines:

  1. Angels and Miracles / April 30th, 2015
  2. The Joy of Christmas / April 30, 2016
  3. Stories About Teachers and Teaching / June 30, 2016
  4. Blended Families / June 30, 2016
  5. Curvy and Confident / June 30, 2016
  6. Stories about Teachers and Teaching / June 30, 2016
  7. College Student Stories / July 31, 2016
  8. Parent to Parent / July 31, 2016
  9. Stories about Cats / October 31, 2016
  10. Stories About Dogs / October 31, 2016
  11. Best Mom Ever! / September 30, 2016

Once you’ve got your poem or story polished and ready, go to the submissions page and give it a go.

They don’t send out rejection letters, per se, but if your work is accepted, you can expect to hear from them within 60 days of the book’s release date.

Each book or poem selected for publication will fetch the author $200 dollars.

Best of luck, everyone!

  2. How much do you want to bet that Scabby Assy is writing a story about how she overcame cyber bullying and became a successful minger, oh I mean supermodel.

    • I have no doubt. She probably is. But I have faith that they know the real thing when they see it. And that’s aside from the fact that her writing skills simply aren’t up to the task.

  3. Give it a try but im barely going to make my own deadlines. After finding out some pretty bad news ive had to stop most of everything im doing. But i will try. Maybe one for the cat and dog ones
