Hi, Brian.
The folks at Chicken Soup for the Soul Publishing love our Canadian stories, so Chicken Soup  for the Soul, The Spirit of Canada is being compiled to help celebrate the 150th anniversary of Confederation, which is July 1st  2017.
Do you have a great story? If so, it could get published, and yes, you would get paid!   
We're looking for true, personal, dramatic, heartwarming or inspirational stories that celebrate our unique Canadian Spirit. As always, we're seeking stories that inspire and open the heart of the reader; that make them laugh or cry, give them goose bumps or cause them to gasp and say,  "I'm so glad I read that story!"   
The best stories are written in the first person, and might be founded on traditional Chicken Soup themes of: 
Overcoming Obstacles 
Living Your Dreams 
Triumphing in the face of adversity 
Love and Sacrifice 
Kindness, family, community 
...and making a difference
Here are a few suggestions to get you thinking:
Tell a story about a local hero that inspired you, or one of our greatest Canadian heroes that impacted your life.
Do you live in a community that has suffered a challenge - and experienced the kindness of neighbours or first-responders  who showed up to make a difference?
Are you, or is one of your family members in the Canadian Military? Do you have a story you can share?
Are you an immigrant, or the child of immigrants, who came to Canada for a better life? Is there a moving story that might involve courage or sacrifice?
Share your favourite holiday stories from our precious summer long weekends, including Victoria Day and Canada Day, the Civic Holiday and Labour Day.
Share your story about Thanksgiving and other holidays, and how we do them in Canada.
Tell a great story that happened at the cottage - any time of the year!
Do you have a great story about camping or canoe tripping, or hiking in the Rockies, water skiing of snow skiing or skating? And we LOVE hockey stories!
Tell a story that comes to life in the region you live - from the west coast to the Maritimes, the prairies, the Rockies, our hundreds of lakes and rivers, the far north, and everything in between.
Did you travel the world with a Canadian Flag on your back pack?
Feel free to include our unique Canadian expressions eh, (use our unique Canadian spellings,) and don't forget how we obsess over the weather!
This book is scheduled for publication in May of 2017, right before Canada Day, but we need a steady flow of stories to create and edit the book, so the first deadline is March 31st 2016.
