MissionAssist provides various opportunities for writers. The authors in the EasyEnglish team have so far produced an entire translation of the Bible, commentaries, Bible studies and a range of other books, including Shell Books for functional literacy. All of these resources are available for free online, the EasyEnglish Bible and reading plans are available in the YouVersion Bible app, and some apps are also available for individual books of the Bible, with audio too.

EasyEnglish has a defined vocabulary and guidelines for writers to follow. The major endeavour to translate the Old Testament and New Testament into clear, easy to understand English has been completed. However, there could be an opportunity for someone who understands the vision and potential of the EasyEnglish project to join the team and write additional reading plans, books, and literacy booklets.
