20th Anniversary Reader's Choice book
Chicken Soup for the Soul has been changing lives one story at a time since 1993. To celebrate our upcoming twenty-year anniversary, we are creating a very special edition filled with stories about how Chicken Soup for the Soul has made a difference in people's lives.
Have you read a Chicken Soup for the Soul story that changed your life? Changed your outlook? Helped you solve a problem? Encouraged you to try something new and different? Showed you how to treat a person or a situation differently? If a Chicken Soup for the Soul story has made a big difference to you, we want your story! Tell us the name of the story and the title of the Chicken Soup for the Soul book in which it appeared. Then write us a new Chicken Soup for the Soul story all about how the old story helped or changed you. We'll publish the stories in pairs - the old ones and the new ones.
Please remember, we do not like "as told to" stories. Please write in the first person about yourself or someone close to you. If you ghostwrite a story for someone else we will list that person's name as the author. If a story was previously published, we will probably not use it unless it ran in a small circulation venue. Let us know where the story was previously published in the "Comments" section of the submission form.
If your story is chosen, you will be a published author and your bio will be printed in the book if you so choose. You will also receive a check for $200 and 10 free copies of your book, worth more than $100. You will retain the copyright for your story and you will retain the right to resell it.
