It’s a bi-monthly publication that focuses on what’s right with the world. This magazine has the same hallmark, positive outlook of the Chicken Soup books. The editors like to hear from people with stories that inspire and encourage others.
You’ll find in this publication expert advice, humor, food, and travel articles in addition to great “Chicken Soup” stories.
The editors accept contributions from readers as well as from freelance writers.
