A Writing Opportunity

  • Posted on July 20, 2012 at 8:00 AM

After recently reviewing a collection of essays, it seems altogether appropriate to announce a current opportunity to be included in such a collection.

Chicken Soup for the Soul is compiling a collection of stories about raising kids on the spectrum.  So if you are raising a child with autism and you’d like to share some of your story, you might consider submitting a piece.  Here are the details from the website:

“If you are the parent of a child with autism or Asperger’s, we invite you to share your story about raising your child - the ups and downs, the effect on your family, your child’s special attributes and talents, and the lighter moments too. You may use a “pen name” on your story. These stories will provide advice, comfort and insight to other parents in the same situation. The deadline date for story and poem submissions is September 30, 2012.

Happy writing!!!

    Thanks! I haven’t quite kept up with my reading so I hadn’t seen that yet.

    I do recommend submitting your story. It’s hard to know who they’ll select, but it’s always fun to try!

    Hi Stephanie-thanks for the info. I did submit two a while back…kind of forgot till now. We’ll see. :)

    Good luck! :)

    Whether I submit or not is going to depend entirely on how effectively I meet deadlines between now and then, excluding the books, of course, because those have much longer deadlines.
