Tales wanted: Do you have a midlife story?

Posted: Thursday, August 23, 2001

Do you have heart-warming, insightful and powerfully moving stories about midlife? It could be about anything that occurred from whatever age you feel is "middle age" -- somewhere above "youth" and below "old."

The authors of the New York Times bestselling book series "Chicken Soup for the Soul" are seeking stories to include in "Chicken Soup for the Midlife Soul," their new book about life in the "middle ages."

So far, "Chicken Soup for the Soul" titles have sold more than 60 million copies to date, literally transforming the lives of readers from all walks of life.

A Chicken Soup story is an inspirational, sometimes emotional, often humorous, true story, that opens the heart and re-kindles the spirit. It is the personal account of an event, a relationship, an obstacle overcome, a lesson learned or a dream fulfilled that helps the reader discover basic principles they can use in their own lives.

Some of the mid-life topics we will include are: Midlife Romances, On Adventure, Reclaiming Yourself and Your Dreams, Overcoming Obstacles, On Parenting, Speaking Our Minds, On Spirituality, On Aging and Our Changing Body/Appearance, Treasuring Friendships, Menopause, The Gifts of Midlife. Any topics or story topics will be considered.

If you have a great story about an experience you've had during midlife and would like to be included in "Chicken Soup for the Midlife Soul," send your stories to: Chicken Soup for the Midlife Soul at Box 31453, Santa Fe, NM 87594-1453 (keep copies, as submissions will not be returned). Fax to (505) 989-4486 or e-mail stories to samarston@earthlink.net.

The maximum word count is 1,200 words. For each story selected for the book, a 50-word biography will be included about the author and a permission fee of $300 will be paid for one-time rights. There are no limits on the number of submissions. Stories must be received no later than Nov. 15.
