Call :: Chicken Soup for the Soul Wants Your Story for My Wonderful, Wacky Family!

Deadline: April 30, 2022
We all have them! Those eccentric, goofy, wacky, lovable, and oh-so-fun family members—the ones we tell all the stories about. They could be a parent or grandparent, an in-law, a brother or sister, an aunt, uncle or cousin. Share your true stories and poems about those family members. With love and appreciation, please. No mean-spirited stories wanted. If we publish your piece, you will be paid $200 plus 10 free copies of the book. Writing guidelines and more info at
