We specifically create programs that enable better understanding (both professional and personal) between small businesses in the US and their foreign counterparts. We are looking for contributors who live in the US and abroad to record short stories about life in their locality for broadcast on our station. The stories do NOT necessarily have to be about business; it could be on any subject of general human interest stories (e.g. the unique aspects of a wedding ceremony or the challenge of youth unemployment or the joy of buying your first used car in a country where cars are expensive, or the tension between being an adult and having to live with your parents while job hunting, etc., etc., etc.) The key is that it must be a human interest story that would be of interest to both a US and an international audience about LIFE WHERE YOU ARE.

1-2 writers wanted for creative ghostwriting projects. You’ll be taking story-lines written out and fleshing them out into a full novella or short story. Long term work is a must. Most writing will be based on a series. Native English speakers only please. These books are NOT erotica, but they will have steamy scenes between married couples in the stories. No profane words allowed either. Later on we may rewrite stories to be more for a clean storyline. (Hence the long term commitment preferred.) Each book is 10,000-15,000 words aprx. Longer books with higher pay may be negotiated after a few months of working with us. Work will be checked for plagiarism and copying, if found, you will not be paid, period.

Although writers can receive marketing support through our company for their own...
