      1. Yeah I can usually relate to a few Chicken Soup books. I was waiting for a few submissions to come back to me and I heard from the last one last week. So now I have to find where to submit them again.

  1. Thanks so much for sharing this information, Rachel. I’m an English Lit buff, proud nerdy-girl, and have graduated with my BA in World Literature & Liberal Arts. I’ve got a blog going, and have developed a portfolio – finally! I am working on my first book, but know I’ve got a ways to go if I pursue that first. I know it’s “my thing”, and what I love, but I have always chickened out of getting my writing out there. I’ve been working up the courage *which may sound silly, I know*, but you are giving me a turning point here, and I am endlessly grateful for that. I will keep you posted on how this goes and which one(s) I make any submission(s) to. Outside of that, though, I do hope we are in touch regardless, as it’s just nice to find other people living life with their nose in a book or pen in their hand too. 🙂

    1. Hi! I’m glad you found this listing helpful. And you don’t sound silly at all. It took me a long time to muster up enough courage to start putting my writing out there as well. It’s not an easy thing to do. 🙂
      Good luck with your writing and I’d love to hear about any progress you make!

Let me know what you think!
