News: Chicken Soup for the Soul Pays $200 per Story or Poem.

Chicken Soup for the Soul is calling for submissions of inspirational stories. They pay $200 per poem or short story that they publish. You’ll also get 10 free copies of the book you’re published in.

The story has to be completely true and must be an inspirational story. Since their start, the Chicken Soup for the Soul franchise has sold over 500 million books worldwide. They even recently landed a movie deal, with a major motion picture forthcoming, based on their books.

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.
