I am looking for a writer who can write a series of dramatic short stories for a downloadable British-English-audiobook set I am planning to make.

My audience is English as a foreign-language learners (primarily, but by no means limited to, Japanese students) who are interested in British English, life in the UK and British culture.

Stories would have to

- Be written in good British English which is consistent across stories
- Be engaging and energetic, with highly dramatic/ emotional content (think soap-opera/ TV drama style)
- Be accessible to English language learners

I am looking for a writer who can

- Fulfill the above criteria
- Write regular stories (I would need to work how often out with the writer, as I am on a very tight budget)
- Can come up with their own ideas for engaging stories (I would like to work with the writer on this, at least initially)
- Can properly research their writing

Interested writers should contact me with a rough quote for a 500 word story.
