Chicken Soup for the Mother and Daughter Soul has sold over 600,000 copies and was on the NY Times bestseller list for 9 weeks. It’s time for another. Time to celebrate Mother’s Day and Every Day with a new collection of stories to inspire, heal, challenge, teach and share love and wisdom.
Topics will include but not be limited to:
We’re looking for inspirational, true stories, 1000 words or less, that will make readers laugh, cry, jump for joy, find a moment of peace, or just say “wow.” Stories should be positive, universal, and non-controversial. The “message” should be evident without preaching. No essays, commentaries, tributes, letters, philosophical or biographical pieces will be accepted.
If you have a story that meets the guidelines and would like to submit it you may use one of two methods. You can send your story as an attachment to an e-mail in Microsoft Word format (most word processors have the option to "save as" a Word document) to one of the authors, Didi Firman at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include all contact information at the top of your story, rather than in the body of the e-mail. Include your Name, address, phone numbers (cell & FAX if available) and your e-mail address.
You may also submit stories directly on the Chicken Soup web site, to do so, go to http://www.chickensoup.com/ and on the left side of the page under "Share with us" click on "Submit a story" fill out the required information and under "Step 2: Story information", you will find a pull down menu entitled "Chicken Soup for…", scroll down until you come to Mother and Daughter Soul II and then complete the information requested on the form.
