Chicken Soup for the Soul always has new books in development.
A Chicken Soup for the Soul story is an inspirational, true story about ordinary people having extraordinary experiences. It is a story that opens the heart and rekindles the spirit. It is a simple piece that touches our readers and helps them discover basic principles they can use in their own lives. These stories are personal and often filled with emotion and drama. They are filled with vivid images created by using the five senses. In some stories, the readers feel that they are actually in the scene with the people.
Chicken Soup for the Soul stories are written in the first person and have a beginning, middle and an end. The stories often close with a punch, creating emotion, rather than simply talking about it.
Here’s what they’re currently looking for:
Miracles, Amazing Coincidences & the Unexplainable
While the book is tentatively titled Miracles & Divine Intervention, we do not intend for this book to be for religious readers only. It is for everyone who loves to hear about miracles, amazing coincidences, and the mysterious and unexplainable good things that can happen to us.
Based on the submissions we have received we realized that many people thought we only wanted religious stories. Not the case! Please submit all your cool stories about those miraculous good things that happen in our lives.
We want your stories to make people say “wow" and give them chills. Covid-19/lockdown stories are welcome, too. We are all living through this together and if something miraculous occurred related to the disease or the lockdown or the financial impact of Covid, our readers will be very interested.
Deadline: August 31, 2020.
Submit through their online submissions form here.
Making Me Time and Taking Care of Yourself. Deadline September 30, 2020.
Tough Times. Deadline October 31, 2020.
Cats. Deadline November 30, 2020.
