Call for Submissions: Chicken Soup for the Soul

Chicken Soup for the Soul (CSS) announces a new call for submissions to contribute to a new anthology about “Dreams and Synchronicities." This anthology is encouraging writers to share their dreams or intuitions that have changed their behavior.

A few ideas: 1) You have a dream that exposes a truth or a new belief to you; 2) You have a spine-chilling feeling that alters your behavior and saves you or a loved one from tragedy; 3) You meet someone special at just the right moment and you can’t believe the stroke of “good” luck. The editors accept first-person, experiential stories or stories ghostwritten on somebody’s behalf. Stories can be funny, entertaining, serious or sincere; most importantly, stories must uplift and hearten readers to experience the writer’s full range of emotions.

This anthology is a second edition of the bestseller Chicken Soup for the Soul: Dreams and Premonitions. Contribute your stories about the extraordinary things that you have experienced in your own life.

Word length: up to 1200 words.

Poetry: open line count.

Payment: $200 per story or poem, plus 10 contributor’s copies. Authors retain the copyright to their stories.

Deadline: March 31, 2016. Read full submission guidelines and submit your work here.

Founded in 1993, Chicken Soup for the Soul books have sold more than 100 million copies worldwide. The series is published and distributed by Simon & Schuster, Inc. A typical CSS story is an inspiring, factual story about common people having astounding experiences, opening the hearts of readers and revitalizing their souls with purpose. Each story contains a special, unique element of emotion that makes readers become more confident, more interconnected, more appreciative, more spirited and more fitting about life as a whole.
