In Chicken Soup Again

volunteering-chicken-soupA story of mine is in a new Chicken Soup for the Soul book about volunteering.  I wrote a memoir about the two years I volunteered at the Winnipeg Art Gallery. Shortly after I submitted my piece I became an employee at the art gallery. Getting a job is only one of the many positive things that happened to me because of my volunteering in the gallery’s school programs division and in my latest “chicken-soupy” story I explore the ways my stint as an art gallery volunteer enriched my life. 

chicken-soup-bookEach Chicken Soup book contains one hundred and one stories chosen from thousands that are submitted. This is the third time I’ve had one of my stories selected. As in the past besides my writing cheque I’ve received 10 copies of the book. I never know what to do with all my copies( I think my kids are getting tired of seeing them in their Christmas stockings) so if you’d like one let me know and I’ll see that you get it. 

If you are interested in submitting a story for a future Chicken Soup book you can get all the information here.

    I’m so happy that your writing continues to “bear fruit”. Wish I lived in Winnipeg so I could ask you for a copy of the book. I’ve always enjoyed your writing and especially looked forward to each time you’d provide a week of devotionals in ‘Rejoice’ magazine.


  3. Yes, congrats! It would be great if you shared the piece with the Anitas!
