    Default Could you recommend me any websites including true stories?

    Hi, I am trying to find some good English websites including true stories, about 1000-3000-word long. Those like the stories in Soup for Souls or Guideposts magazine (these two websites I have got).
    Or the websites of some good magazines are OK, sometimes there are archives available. But as a non-English speaker, I don’t know much about what English magazines are suitable for me, not to say their websits. So could anyone here help me? I am in fact desperately need such information, thank you!!

    There are quite a few good stories at the National Geographic website. Here are a couple.

    Everest Anniversary Expedition Wrap-Up

    June 12, 2002 "It was a tough trip, with a great finale," said Peter Hillary, now relaxing at home in New Zealand after reaching the summit of Mount Everest last month. He was part of an eight-person expedition that scaled the world's highest peak to mark the historic first ascent of the mountain by his father, Edmund Hillary, and Tenzing Norgay half a century ago.

    There are many more stories there.
