Chicken Soup for the Soul: True Love
101 Heartwarming and Humorous Stories about Dating, Romance,
Everyone loves a good love story. And we all love stories about how the love started and blossomed.
Join us in a fun new book about dating, romance, love, and marriage, scheduled for publication in January 2010, just in time for Valentine's Day.
We are looking for about your soulmate, your true love, the one that got away, and all the ups and downs of your love life. Stories can be serious or hilarious, or both.
We prefer stories and poems written in the first person of 600-1,200 words. Stories should not be pre-published unless in very small publications.
Here are some suggested topics, but we know you can think of many more:
Dating adventures - the good and the bad
How you met
Internet searching and dating
and other strategies
When did you know?
Parental pressure and support
Pressure and support from children
Senior dating and love at a certain age
Making marriage work
If your story is chosen, you will be a published author and your bio will be printed in the book if you so choose. You will also receive a check for $200 and 10 free copies of your book, worth more than $100. You will retain the copyright for your story and you will retain the right to resell it.
