FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Where should I post my story?
In your personal journal on PulseWire. Do not post in the Voices of Our Future Group. This Group is reserved for weekly assignments, updates, and questions.

When is the assignment due?
The assignment must be posted to your journal by Tuesday March 31, 2009 at 11:59pm HST (Honolulu Standard Time).
www.timeanddate.com is a great website to find out what time this is where you are.

What should I title my article?
Your title must be labeled as:
"VOF Week 2: (your title)".
You will place your own title in the parentheses (title).

Can I write my story in my native language?
At this time we are unable to read assignments in all languages. The primary language for submission is English. However, if your language is represented in our translation tool, our Listeners can use it to read your application. To find out, locate the "Translate Page" box on the top right of the page. If your language is there, you may write in your native language.

We look forward to welcoming many more languages in the future!
