I’m Commissioning Longform Articles About the Atheism World

It’s a new year and I’m trying to experiment with a few things on this site.

As I began doing last year, I have an open call for guest posts and for those interested in becoming a regular contributor to the site. I get a lot of emails about these things and I try my best to respond to everyone. You can learn more about both opportunities here.

What I’m even more excited about is the opportunity to commission/edit #longform pieces related to the atheist movement. Think Atlantic-or-New Yorker-style articles. Several thousand words. Not quite book-length, but much longer than your typical long blog post. Very-in-depth profiles of figures, events, or ideas in our movement.

Specifically, for this project, I’m looking for freelance journalists or students who can write very well. If you’re familiar with our movement, even better. I have a couple of topics already floating around in my mind and I just need to find the right people to write them. I’m also open to ideas you might have, stories you’d like to read about, and people you think might be perfect for this opportunity. If you know anyone who might be interested, please pass this post along to them. (Any of the longform writers would get paid fairly well for their work.)

Again, all the information is here. If you have any questions, I’ll do my best to answer them below!
