Chicken Soup for the Soul: Family Caregivers
101 Stories of Love, Sacrifice, and Bonding
We want to hear from you if you are caring for a member of your family or if you are a person receiving care from a family member. (Please know that we are in awe of professional caregivers, but for this book, we only want stories from family members caring for family members.) The true stories in this book will show how lives change when caregiving becomes your responsibility. They will inspire and support family members who are making sacrifices to make sure their loved ones are well cared for, whether in their own homes or elsewhere.
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.
Please remember, we do not like “as told to” stories. Please write in the first person about yourself or someone close to you. Do not ghost write a story for someone else. If a story was previously published, we will probably not use it unless it ran in a small circulation venue. Let us know where the story was previously published in the “Comments” section of the submission form.
