 Last Christmas I wrote a song for my hubby's grandmother.  In the spring I got the story writing bug and joined the SCBWI.  Then I saw a post somewhere on the BlueBoard of many places seeking articles and short stories.  I noticed Chicken Soup for the Soul on the list. So I wrote about writing the song and submitted it. 

My story will be in Chicken Soup for the Soul: Christmas in Canada, coming out Oct 14! 

Thank you to whoever it was who posted the list!

I've had a go around with these guys as well -- however, they were less eager when I insisted they share some of the great fortune they've made on this series with this particular contributor. They do pay writers, but for some reason, prefer not to. If they haven't offered payment, I would ask.

I just had a story included in their The Cat Did What? publication which came out a few weeks ago. They've been lovely to work with. And Chicken Soup for the Soul is a well-known series, so congratulations on your appearance with them!
