Chicken Soup for the Soul Needs Submissions for 10 Upcoming Books
Writers who wish to submit to Chicken Soup for the Soul should be aware of deadlines that are approaching.
According to their website:
“If we publish your story or poem, you will be paid $200 ($100 for devotionals) one month after publication of the book and you will receive ten free copies of the book your story or poem appears in. You will also become part of the Chicken Soup for the Soul family, you will receive our exclusive contributors’ communiqué and you will be entitled to buy cases of books from us at a discount.”
The following books have deadlines that are approaching:
Christmas and Holiday Collection –– 2018 / February 28th, 2018
The Best Advice I Ever Heard / February 28th, 2018
The Golden Years – Life After 60 / June 30, 2018

Writers should expect a response within 60 days of the book’s “on sale” date. If you haven’t heard back by that time, they have not selected your story for publication. They have a sort of strange company culture, which discourages negative communication – which is why they don’t send rejection letters.
