Chicken Soup Possible Titles
Chicken Soup for the Soul stories are written
in the first person and have a beginning, middle and an ending that often closes
with a punch, creating emotion rather than simply talking about it. Chicken Soup
for the Soul stories have heart, but also something extra…an element that makes
us all feel more hopeful, more connected, more thankful, more passionate and
better about life in general. A story that causes tears, laughter, goosebumps or
any combination of these. A good story covers the range of human emotions.
The most powerful stories are about
people extending themselves, or performing an act of love, service or courage
for another person.

date for story submissions is April 30, 2011.
