Markets For Writers

My ‘Markets For Freelancers’ and my ‘More Markets For Freelancers’ pages are filling up so it’ll soon be time to start a new one! Here is my market of the week:

Chicken Soup for the Soul:

Founded in the US by two motivational speakers who published a book of inspirational stories they’d been told, ‘Chicken Soup for the Soul’ has now been going for over twenty years, with over 250 books in the series published. Each book is full of true-life, inspirational stories/poems and they’re always on the lookout for new writers. 

The website features writers’ guidelines and you can also take a look at new topics they’re looking to cover.

The maximum word count for each story is 1200 words and remember, the story must be true.

US$200 is paid for your story, US$100 for a poem, if accepted, plus ten free copies of the book it appears in.

You can find out more about writing for the series by spending time looking through the website:
