Call for Submissions: Chicken Soup for the Sisters’ and Brothers’ Soul (Pays: $200/nonfiction story; $100/cartoon; $50/poem)

From an e-mail just received from Ken and Dahlynn McKowen:

Our publisher just moved up our deadline for Chicken Soup for the Sisters’ and Brothers’ Soul–by an entire year! We need stories NOW!

We just updated our website with information about what we need in the way of stories, including the tentative chapter headings to give you some ideas.

With the holidays upon us and lots of family gatherings, it’s time to rekindle some of those old memories, then share them with us.

Check our website for updated information

The deadline for Sisters’ and Brothers’ stories is January 15, 2007 for a book that will be published and in bookstores in time for the 2007 holidays.

NB: Do be sure to check the site carefully for details, including these important content notes:

It’s important that all stories submitted be about a relationship between a sister and a brother, not a sister-sister relationship or a brother-brother relationship. And we’re including stories written by, and about, all age groups, from birth to childhood, the teen years to adulthood, the golden years to passing on.

And you don’t necessarily need to be the sister or brother in the story; parents and grandparents are invited to share their stories, too, witnessing the interaction between their children and/or grandchildren as it relates to sister and brother relationships.
