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.

Ronbee, I really want to explain to you what kind of things I am looking for, but I am afraid I couldn’t express myself very clearly in English, but I want to have a try.
I am collecting those good true stories that happened in the west countries, they should be interesting, amazing, moving or inspiring. The articles should be 1000-3000-word long. But I need not news stories. I am going to translate them into Chinese and try to make them published.
Besides, I think there should be some columns publishing such stories in certain English magazines too, but I don’t know what magazines in America are popular and have good stories. Could you recommend some magazines to me?

You could try the National Geographic website for starters. They have stories from all over the world. They are about all kinds of things. Also, you might want to ask your question on some other forums, where you can get some more ideas.
