I don't have any desire to write about my own atheism, I do write other stuff and will be happy to submit that here, though.

Let me know if still interested -- I could use an editor, but something's got to be in it for you as well.

I just published, this month, my “coming out” in a national magazine. I'd like to do more.

I fear my brothers (devout Catholics) will stumble upon this article. I love my bros -- But...

I’m looking for a fellow TTAer interested tackling this course. We could critique each other’s work to make it fit for publication.

I'm in. What do you need from me?

RE: “Come out of the closet” by publishing!
I think "Come out of the closet" Publishing would be a pretty legit name for a publishing company.

Just pointing this out Hobo Smile

It would be a publishing company I would love to work with and be a part of.


Could focus on bringing voices out of the darkness that people generally would never hear.... if that makes sense.

A good story? Understand I'm not a publisher. Just looking to share writing and offer critique.

So I just had a good buddy ask me why I chose "that" story to submit to The Humanist. 1. the story has universal appeal, and 2. they certainly wouldn't censor my atheism; they embrace it!

Concerning atheism or just in general?

Regardless I'd love to have some of my stuff critiqued.

Sure, anything. I'm happy to see what you have. I've given JesseB some feedback so far, which I hope was helpful.

Just write something interesting and color it well then submit it. I have been published a few times. You don't need an insider to get published, you just need to go for it.

Look for a few different publications that publish similar or controversial stuff such as you would write. Find out what their submission requirements are and then go for it.

After my first couple publications a few decades ago the editor would call me to ask if I had any new contributions for publication. Once they start liking what you are doing they may actually pay you.
