Chicken Soup for the Working Mom's Soul
Share Your Favorite Story
Most working mothers are juggling so many balls they can barely keep them all in the air. Some days they feel like master-performers, and others they feel like bumbling clowns! Chicken Soup for the Working Mother's (Mom?) Soul will share the trials and tribulations, happiness and hilarities of being a working mom, inside or outside the home.
Topics will include but not be limited to:
Hi Ho Hi Ho, Off to Work I Go
Home Again, Home Again, Rigetty Jig
Mama Never Said it Would Be Easy
Sign Me Up!
Where Do I Resign?
I'm Trying to Balance! Where's My Umbrella?
If the Boss Only Knew.
A Mom First
When Can It Be About Me?
The Joys and Jocularity
We're looking for inspirational, true stories, 1000 words or less, that
will make readers laugh, cry, or sigh. Stories should be positive,
universal, and non-controversial. The "point" or "message" should be evident without preaching. No essays, commentaries, tributes,
philosophical or biographical pieces will be accepted.
You may submit more than one story, whether original or a favorite from magazines, newspapers, or other sources. For each story selected in the book, a 50-word biography will be included about the author and a permission fee of $200 per story and $50 per poem will be paid. The submission deadline is March 1, 2007.
Please submit your story through our website at Be sure to select Working Mom as the book title.
