$200 for Personal Essays About Running

Chicken Soup for the Soul is seeking submissions for their upcoming book, Running for Good. They’re seeking personal essays about how running can help charitable organizations and/or how it can improve your health, friendships, and quality of life.

They pay $200 per published story, and give contributors 10 free copies of the book their essays appear in.

The deadline for submissions for this book is December 15th, 2018.

According to their call for submissions:

It is well known that running conditions the body, but it is also great for conditioning the mind and the spirit. The title of this new book on running has two meanings: running is good for you and improves your health or you can run to do good for others or to raise awareness of an issue or raise funds for a charitable organization. We are looking for true stories about all aspects of running: camaraderie, personal challenges, training, triumphs and defeats, why you run, what running means to you, how running changed your life, reaching your goal, and humor… we love funny, quirky, and unusual stories. The deadline date for story and poem submissions is December 15, 2018.
