As editors, we're looking first and foremost for excellent writing.

We're always excited to feature new writers!

Furthermore, we’re happy to announce that we’re now accepting online submissions! Beginning this fall, all submissions will be handled by Submishmash, a great online system that will simplify the submitting process for writers and streamline our editorial work. Go to for more information, or click here to submit directly. We look forward to reading your work!

In an effort to keep our online content fresh, promote some of the less-traditional genres that we love, and reward some of the many deserving writers out there, we've also revamped the structure of our online contests for 2010/2011. We're now offering two awards, beginning October 1 with the Big Fish Online Contest: Flash Fiction and Prose Poetry

(deadline November 1). A prize of $200 and online publication will be given for the best piece of writing under 500 words that we receive. Flash fiction, short-shorts, micro-prose, prose poems, poetic prose, just plain short stories--whatever you call your briefest prose pieces, send them our way! It's only $9 to enter, and all submissions will be considered for the print journal.

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. 

Brides and Weddings
Seeking stories about this very special experience in your life. From the proposal, to the planning, to actual wedding day events – both touching and hilarious - these stories will capture your heart and your emotions. Stories from the groom or the proud parents would be great too! Please share the memories that were created during this special time in your life. The deadline date for story submissions is April 30, 2011.

If you are Canadian, CS is looking for stories from you! Send us your inspirational, humorous, or heartwarming stories. They don't have to specifically be about Canada -- they just have to be Chicken Soup for the Soul stories that take place in Canada or are written by Canadians. If you are not Canadian but you have a great story that took place in Canada (examples would be American college student at McGill, stranded travelers in Newfoundland on 9/11, great vacation stories) that is fine too. The deadline for story submissions is January 30, 2011.

Devotional Stories for Times of Trouble
Life has always been filled with trials, including illness, job loss, grief, addictions, and much more. God never promised that our earthly lives would be without difficulties, but he assured us that he will always be with us to share our burdens. If you have a brief true story (up to 500 words) that shows God's presence during a time of trouble, please share it along with an applicable Bible verse and a 2-3 sentence prayer. You will receive $100 for each published devotion. ($100 due to the shorter word count than our regular books.) The deadline date for submissions is February 28, 2011.

Marriage and Married Life
Whether you are newly married or have been married for years and years, the stories in this book will capture your imagination, inspire you, make you laugh and touch your heart. We are looking for stories that will celebrate the commitment two people make when they say their vows. Tell us about your relationship. What makes it work? How did the comfort of your mate guide you through challenging times? What is the most important thing in your relationship? How did you try to change your mate? Did it work?! The deadline date for story submissions is May 30, 2011.

Mothers and Daughters
Mothers and daughters - they are, at the same time, very similar and also completely unique. Mothers show daughters who they will become. Daughters live out mothers’ dreams. Through birth, childhood, teen years, adulthood, grandchildren, aging, and every step in between, this relationship can be the best, the hardest, and the sweetest. The deadline date for story submissions is December 31, 2010. This title will not publish until 2012.

Being a preteen can be tough. Puberty, friends, school, family issues can all seem challenging. Our preteen book will be like a portable support group. You remember your preteen years. Please share your own personal stories that you think will help preteens navigate these challenging years. Stories can be about serious topics, friends, most embarrassing moments, and anything else that is relevant to 9-12-year-olds. The deadline date for story submissions is October 31, 2010.

A completely new book on one of our most requested topics - TEENS. The stories in this book, written almost entirely by teens, will be stories that you will want to read again and again. They will serve as your guide on topics such as the daily pressures of life, love, school, friendships, parents and much more. We are looking for stories that will encourage you, inspire you, make you laugh, make you cry and show you that, as tough as things can get, you are not alone. The deadline date for story submissions is December 31, 2010.

Young at Heart
So, you've crossed that magic age and you are ready to retire or start a second career. But you're not ready to stop living! You feel energetic and young and there is still so much to see and do and enjoy. We are looking for stories that will share with our readers humorous and fun adventures from those who are actively enjoying their "senior years!" Tell us about your new careers, your volunteer work, your sports and sports cars, your new love interest, your travels, your families and all of those things you always wanted to do that you are finally doing now that you have the time.
