Chicken Soup for the Soul: Here Comes the Bride
101 Stories of Love, Laughter and Family
 


You did it! You found that one special person with whom you want to spend the rest of your life... your soulmate... your best friend. Now it's time to plan for your big day. Your wedding is one of the most special and memorable events in your life. It will bring you warm and wonderful memories for many years to come. And there might also be some humorous and disastrous memories surrounding your big day too.

We want to hear all about everything! We are looking for true stories and poems about your wedding and about being a bride. We'd love to hear from the groom too. From the proposal to the multitude of arrangements to the rehearsal to the big day to the honeymoon and everything in between. Did everything go as planned? Did the best man forget the ring? Was your first dance the most romantic dance ever? Did your mother-in-law ruin your day? Stories can be touching and inspirational or wicked and funny.

Here are some suggested topics but we know you can think of many more:

bulletThe proposal
bulletThe rings
bulletThe perfect dress
bulletThe location of the wedding
bulletThe rehearsal/rehearsal dinner
bulletThe bridal shower/the bachelor party
bulletThe big day
bulletThe honeymoon

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.

SUBMISSIONS GO TO http://chickensoup.com
Select the Submit Your Story link on the left tool bar and follow the directions.

The deadline date for story submissions is June 30, 2011.




My Funny Valentine, a humor anthology (no pay)

 

Details and submission: http://myfunnybooks.biz

 

Seeking submissions of very funny writing related to Valentine’s Day.
Submissions so far have tended to be columns in the Dave Barry/Erma Bombeck mold, but there’s also out-of-envelope material. We’ll look at essays, light verse, lyrics, jokes and routines: anything that is truly funny and can be printed. We won’t run anything X-rated or violating the usual taboos, but we’ll give it a look.


“My Funny Valentine” will be an attractive low-priced gift paperback, available on all online stores, and on order from any bookstore.


There is no pay but copies because the book is not aimed at profit, but promotion. All contributors will benefit from the promotional efforts of all the others (aided with support from the publishers and editors, such as videos) and the seasonal nature of the book makes it a natural for media attention.


Previous publication is not a problem, as long as you can release the rights. Work will be copyrighted for authors, but no impediment placed to later publication elsewhere. That’s a lot of the concept.


Some excellent material from a surprisingly high level of professional writers and comics has already been accepted, so just dashing something off probably won’t work unless you’re really talented. But don’t let lack of experience keep you from sending in something you think is ready for prime time.
Submissions taken until July 1, 2011.

   A Story is a Promise offers a fresh new model for mastering the elusive art of writing dramatic and engaging stories. In order to illustrate its major principles, the book includes reviews and analyses of over a dozen popular films, novels, and plays. Complete with prompts and questions at the end of each chapter, A Story is a Promise can be used as a workbook to help writers internalize the principle that underlies all well-told stories: that a story should be a promise and that a promise should be kept. The inclusion of familiar examples makes this book accessible and useful to all writers of fiction, plays, and screenplays.

Bill Johnson has been using the manuscript of A Story is a Promise in his workshops for years. Many editors also use the workbook to teach blossoming writers the craft of storytelling.

In his widely read guides How to Write a Damn Good Novel and How to Write a Damn Good Novel II: Advanced Techniques, popular novelist and fiction-writing coach James N. Frey showed tens of thousands of writers how--starting with rounded, living, breathing, dynamic characters--to structure a novel that sustains its tension and development and ends in a satisfying, dramatic climax.

 

Now, in The Key, Frey takes his no-nonsense, "Damn Good" approach and applies it to Joseph Campbell's insights into the universal structure of myths. Myths, says Frey, are the basis of all storytelling, and their structures and motifs are just as powerful for contemporary writers as they were for Homer. Frey begins with the qualities found in mythic heros--ancient and modern--such as the hero's special talent, his or her wound, status as an "outlaw," and so on. He then demonstrates how the hero is initiated--sent on a mission, forced to learn the new rules, tested, and suffers a symbolic death and rebirth--before he or she can return home. Using dozens of classical and contemporary novels and films as models, Frey shows how these motifs and forms work their powerful magic on the reader's imagination.

The Key is designed as a practical step-by-step guide for fiction writers and screen writers who want to shape their own ideas into a mythic story.
