Call for Submissions: Chicken Soup for the Soul wants holiday stories | Due Oct. 31

Chicken Soup for the Soul wants nonfiction stories and poems for its 2018 Christmas and holiday collectionPay is $200 plus 10 copies of the paperback edition for stories of up to 1,200 words.  Authors retain the rights to their work and may republish it at any time.

Our next holiday collection will not be released until 2018 but we are already collecting stories for it. People love reading about the winter holidays – from Thanksgiving all the way through New Year’s Day. We want to hear about your traditions and how they came to be. We want to hear about your holiday memories and the rituals that create the foundation of your life. We love to hear about the funny things too: the ugly holiday sweaters, the gingerbread house that kept falling down, the re-gifting embarrassments and the fruit cake disasters. Please be sure your stories are “Santa safe” so we don’t spoil the magic for any precocious young readers. The deadline date for story and poem submissions is October 31, 2017.
