Now that NANOWRIMO is over, check this out:

Updated November 25th.

Writers who wish to submit to Chicken Soup for the Soul should be aware of deadlines that are approaching. The next deadline is on December 15th, 2016.

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:

  1. Inspiration for Teachers / December 31, 2016
  2. Dreams and Synchronicities / January 30, 2016
  3. Military Families / December 15, 2016
  4. Stories about Cats / January 31, 2017
  5. Stories About Dogs / January 31, 2017

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.
