    • Dear Sudbury Writers Guild:

      Stories Needed from Canadian Writers for a brand new Canadian title…

      Chicken Soup for the Soul
      Christmas in Canada!

      101 Stories about the Joy and Wonder of the Holidays, Canadian Style!

      The May 30th submission deadline is fast approaching…

      Just a reminder in case you missed my earlier invitation! I’m excited to let you, as writers, know about this great opportunity to get published. It would be so great if you would forward this to your members, include it in your newsletter, include it in your blog, and/or post it on your website.
      For a full colour story call out – please e-mail me at

      The October release of O Canada The Wonders of Winter, was so successful, the publisher has asked us to create another Canadian title for Christmas 2014! For the Winter book we received submissions from writers across Canada that belong to groups like this, and many of them were published!

      We need true, dramatic, heartwarming stories, 1200 words or less, that take place at Christmas time in Canada. (Yes, you get paid – $200.00 actually) Here are just some examples of topics:

      • Festivals of lights, Hanukkah, Boxing Day, New Year’s and other holiday traditions and events that come with a great story
      • Christmas Traditions in your church
      • Adapting when the weather gets in the way (like the 2013 ice storms – we KNOW there are some great stories out there – do you have one?)
      • Love and Romance at Christmas
      • Acts of kindness and generosity – in the true spirit of Christmas
      • Hockey!…and all winter sports at Christmas
      • Family ties and reunions, children, and friends old and new
      • Heroes in our midst – at Christmas
      • Neighbours and Community, and Christmas in Canada for new Canadians
      • Animals at Christmas
      • Christmas in the north – First Nation stories
      • Festivals of lights, Hanukkah, Boxing Day, New Year’s and other holiday traditions and events that come with a great story

      Story submission deadline is May 30th.
      For full writers guidelines and how to submit your story, visit my website, or

      I wish you great success, and I really hope to hear from you!

      Love to you,
      Janet Matthews
      Co-author of
      Chicken Soup for the Canadian Soul &
      Chicken Soup for the Soul O Canada
      The Wonders of Winter
      PS: One more thing. It would be so great if you could pass this message along to your friends and family and other writers…who may have a story! EVERY bit of help is really appreciated!
