Chicken Soup for the Soul: Cats

October 26, 2020
Chicken Soup for the Soul: Cats

Our cat titles are so very popular, and you have so many great stories to share with us, that we do a new cat title every eighteen months or so. Here is another chance for you to share a story or two about that member of your family who just happens to walk on four feet for our 2021 book!

We are looking for first-person true stories and poems up to 1,200 words. Tell us about your cat. Tell us how he made you smile. How she "rescued" you after you "rescued" her. How she brought your family closer together, helped you find love, inspired you to change something in your human life. Stories can be serious or humorous, or both. We can’t wait to read all the heartwarming, inspirational, and hysterical stories you have about your cats!

***Please note: If you submitted a story or poem for a previous cat book and we DID NOT publish it, here is your chance to submit it to us again to consider for this new book. If you submitted a story and we DID publish it in a previous cat book, please do not submit it. We will not publish it again.

Deadline: November 30, 2020. If we publish your story, you will be paid $200 one month after publication of the book, and you will receive ten free copies of the book your story or poem appears in.
