Inviting write-ups for Teenage soul


This is Raksha Bharadia, an author based in Ahmedabad. My debut book Me-A handbook for Life (Rupa @ co) is on the shelf.
I am compiling Chicken soup for the Indian Teenage soul for Westland publishing house.
Would like to invite write-ups from you. The themes are:

1. Issues dealing with self esteem
2. Peer pressure
3. Issues dealing with drugs, money, smoking etc.
4. Relationships with parents, friends,
5. Tough stuff
6. Making a Difference

7. Going for it / Reaching for Goals

8. A Learning which has helped you in life

9. Overcoming obstacles
This title would consist of stories, poems, and cartoons of life, love, and learning every teenager can relate to and learn from without feeling criticized or judged.
In"Losing the รข€˜Us,'" sixteen-year-old Lia discovers the difficulties of finding one's individuality after ending a long-term relationship. Actress Jenny Garth describes her concept of home in "I am Home." in "Be Cool; Stay in School," Jason describes a program his school developed to prevent students from dropping out. Frank, a high school student, performs a selfless and random act of kindness in "Reaching Out to a Stranger."

The write-ups need to be true life stories and can be anything between 300-1200 words.

We carry a 4 line profile on the contributing authors along with contact info. Chicken soup for the Indian Teenage soul will be an international release. We take up blogged work and published work too.
The stories need not be just by mothers and teenagers. Anyone can contribute.
One can even write anonymous or in the third person.

Please write to me on bharadiaraksha@hotmail.com or rakshabharadia@gmail.com. There is still a shortage of about 10 write-ups.
