Last week I talked about getting published. In quick review:
1. study two magazines or e-zines
2. obtain their writer's guidelines
3. submit good articles regularly.
Here's another opportunity for easy publication from the Chicken Soup for the Soul series.
I lost some of you there didn't I?
Before you dismiss it as fluff, let me tell you it is an art to learn to write short pieces. The requirements for their submissions are 1200 words or less. That means you have to be concise--which is a great exercise in writing. (Try 500 words or less. That will really give you a workout!)
It must be a true inspirational story. They pay $200 per poem or short story chosen and published. As a contributor, you will receive ten free copies of the book as well. It then goes on your resume not to mention a great writing exercise.
Chicken Soup for the Soul franchise has sold over 500 million books worldwide. They even recently landed a movie deal, with a major motion picture forthcoming, based on their books.
Here is the link if you are interested.
Be sure to read the writer's guidelines and follow them closely.
Did I mention they pay $200?
It's time to get started....
