You’ve seen the books in stores covering just about every topic. Now, Chicken Soup for the Soul is focusing on wine. In order to print stories about that great bottle of vino enjoyed over the perfect meal, they need your input. Chicken Soup for the Wine Lovers Soul is looking for true, touching, insightful stories about how wine has impacted your life.
What makes a good Chicken Soup for the Soul story? Chicken Soup stories inspire, uplift and genuinely touch people. They are filled with vivid images, leaving the reader with a feeling of being "there" – in the story – with the people involved. A Chicken Soup story may make the reader laugh out loud, reach for a Kleenex, or give the reader food for thought, but all Chicken Soup stories create emotion rather than simply describing it.
