Seeking Submissions For Best-Selling Book Series

2004-04-12 16:28:33 by erichicken

I have a welcoming opportunity to let you in on. I am helping put together the next Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul. (You know these books, you have seen them on the bestsellers lists and either read them and gotten something good out of them, or possibly scoffed at them and refuse to read them; that’s fine I did too…) Look, based on the thousands of letters we get, kids love these books and find inspiration, comfort, and strength from them. So, now you can help our youth and get some money for it. Get published in Teens IV and get a few hundred dollars for it if selected. Wanting to help boost the number of submissions I am opening it up to you all and to anyone else you know who is a good writer

Never too late to learn

2011-02-10 15:01:12 by -

There's a lot of things that it does get too late for, just because of the calendar.
Reading, or learning in general is something we never get too old to do.
Myself, I am a voracious reader, many hours per day. But in terms of novels, I do a few per year, rarely more than one in a month. I read a lot of non-fiction - journal articles related to work, journal articles unrelated to work, a couple magazines, and daily news.
In terms of reading old material, I think it's important to recognize why we choose to assign particular stories to youngsters. They tend to be shorter, rather than longer, and they tend to be emotionally charged, having a tendency to bring the reader into the book ("transportation")
