Short story writers needed for web ministry.

By April 3, 2006

International (MNN/TWR) — Do you enjoy stories? If you do, you’re not alone. When Trans World Radio Asia conducted a survey on one of their Websites, they found that over 90 percent of those responding like stories, too. So, TWR is looking to expand the number of stories on that Website, abc111.net, a site that’s helping Chinese youth learn English.

Accoring to TWR’s Internet Ministry Team, they have a few thousand English learners visiting their site some 30,000 times each month. However, they only have three stories that are updated each week and they need more.

If you like to write stories, TWR would like you to consider publishing some of your work on TWR’s Website.

Since their goal is to serve an audience who’s learning English, they need easy-to-read stories in English, like children and youth stories. They can either be Christian stories with a spiritual lesson, or just stories that are morally and ethically sound. Once they’re written and sent to TWR, they’ll publish those stories one episode at a time.

The stories must be very short. 150 words for the beginner level readers. 200 to 250 words for slightly more advanced readers.

TWR would also like you to record your stories slowly so the Chinese audience can listen to the story, to help with pronunciations.

If you’d like to help TWR and abc111.net with this outreach, go to abc111.net/contributors/.
