Chicken Soup for the Soul wants nonfiction stories and poems for an upcoming anthology. Pay 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.
Redemption stories can be amazing. What starts out as a negative force can be turned positive and can change the world of ordinary people. There are countless stories of redemption and we want to hear yours. How did you use the negative in your life to move onto a more positive path? What did you do to make up for the wrongs in your past? We are looking for true stories of redemption that will inspire us, restore us, heal us, and make a positive difference to lead a better, more rewarding life because of the example they set. The deadline date for story and poem submissions is August 31, 2017.
