Recently found out about this call on the PayingWriterJobs list.
Stories are sought for a volume of Chicken Soup for the Stepfamily Soul. Pieces must be “inspirational true stories, 1500 words or less, that will make readers laugh, cry, or be inspired. Stories should be positive, universal, and non-controversial. The ‘point’ or ‘message’ should be evident without preaching.”
See the volume guidelines for more chapter topics and submission instructions.
Payment will be $200 for stories, $50 for poems. Submission deadline: April 29, 2006.
