Dear Michigan Writers,
September 23rd, Nicola’s Books is offering a unique opportunity for writers to learn about Chicken Soup for the Soul – how to submit to their books, the variety of topics coming up for the next year, and what it’s like to be a published author for them – which includes a generous payment. Once accepted by CSS, an author becomes a part of the family and receives advance notice on future topics. If you are new to writing for Chicken Soup for the Soul, we will offer tips and guidelines. If you are familiar with CSS and have even published with them, you can enjoy the three stories about saying YES to new adventures. We will have the readings, a Q and A, and a book sale and signing. Refreshments will be served.
We hope you are able to join us.
Sunday, September 23 @ 3 p.m.
