Got A Story For One of These Titles?

 Chicken Soup For The Soul Think Positive 

Yesterday, I posted a call for submissions on one of the possible book topics that Chicken Soup for the Soul has in the works. Today's post will list the other titles for which the editors are seeking stories. Note the deadline dates for each one. The general rule is that the sooner you submit, the better. 

1.  Miracles  People like to read about the miracles in life, whether big or small. This book will be multi-faith.  The editors are also considering poems for this book. Deadline is July 31, 2013

2  Multitasking Moms Survival Guide They are looking for words of wisdom, lessons you may have learned and funny or embarrassing times in your life as a mother. Both stories and poems are accepted. Deadline is July 31, 2013

3.  O Canada The Wonders of Winter This one is a bit more specialized because they want Canadians to submit their stories about the cold and more that winter brings in Canada. You can be a resident of Canada or an ex-pat living elsewhere. Poems are accepted as well as stories. Deadline is June 15, 2013

4.  Overcoming Challenges  This topic covers a wide territory. Your story should be about a challenge in your life and what you did to meet it. Think small challenges or large ones, I have a feeling all will be considered. Consider financial problems, health issues and loss plus any other challenge you may have faced. Poems will also be considered. Deadline is October 31, 2013

5.  Rebooot Your Life  For this book, the editors are seeking stories that show positive changes in peoples' lives. Did you go from dull and boring to thrilling and exciting? If so, how did you do it? Be serious, funny or inspiring in what you write. Poems accepted, too. Deadline is November 30, 2013

7.  Stories About Dogs  Same as above but the canine variety. Deadline is August 31, 2013

8.  The Dating Game  For this book, the stories should not be long-ago memories, even though I bet some of your stories of decades back would be good ones. This time, they want contemporary stories about the dating game, again they can be serious, funny, or about a total disaster of a date. Stories and poems deadline is July 15, 2013

9.  Think Positve For Kids  The book pictured at the top of this post is one that has already been published. This new book will be geared toward kids 12 and under. They want your stories that will help kids learn about making choices. The stories are meant to be ready by children, to children and discussed with adults. True anecdotes in story or poetry form are sought. Deadline is June 30, 2013
