Hello, dear IDAS and IMAS friends!
I, in partnership with the International Association, am building a virtual space to offer opportunities for any writer or English language learner interested in engaging the cultural scene of Taipei. Are you interested, or know anyone who might be?
The purpose of this website is two-fold:
1.) Offer readers great writing and insight about culture in Taipei, Taiwan (think music scene, art galleries, local writers, etc.).
2.) Offer local English language learners the opportunity to improve their writing skills and see their work published online.
Here’s how it works:
For each 200-500 word article you write regarding a cultural venue or activity, local musical group, museum, etc., qualified English writing instructors will edit with an analysis of your common mistakes and stylistic suggestions.
If you write 3 articles, our editors will also analyze any paper or letter of yours under 10 pages double-spaced, free of charge.
If enough people participate, a quarterly prize of (at least) 2,000 NTD will be awarded to the author with the best writing of that period. See this page for a writing sample and suggestions for how to compose a winning article.
Please help taipeiexpat.info inform more people of the cultural opportunities that await them in Taipei, and improve your English as well. Forward to friends or anyone you think might be interested, and Happy Writing!
