An American Atheist is currently seeking contributors for blog submissions and on air personalities. A number of our previous contributors have moved on because of demands of workload, family and other reasons. We are accepting article submissions on any topic generally relating to religion and skepticism. The articles may be of any length so long as it properly addresses the topic. If you are interested in being an on air talent, please indicate so in your message and we can go from there. We often have people start out writing articles and then bring them on to discuss the article they have written and explore it further. Typical appearances on the show will also include conducting interviews with people in the atheist community and beyond. An American Atheist currently airs off and on on KDVS 90.3 FM in Davis/Sacramento and has aired for the past 3 years more consistently. We plan to expand to more stations in the future. There are no formal requirements other than solid writing ability, ability to communicate effectively and interest in the topics.
The positions are unpaid but allow for very fulfilling work and can be excellent experience for many other fields. Our contributors have valued the experiences here and some have gotten to meet and interview some of their favorite members of the atheist community, scientists, comedians and authors. Time commitments are all up to the contributor but we prefer at least weekly some sort of contact or ideas. The positions may be fulfilled from any location with internet access and we do much of our recordings on Skype and similar programs. Please poke around a bit to get a general feel for our presentation style and personalities.
If you would like to submit an article, either use the ‘contact’ button and paste it into the document or email them to firstname.lastname@example.org and cc: email@example.com. If you would like to submit periodic articles on an article by article basis then that is sufficient and please indicate so or include article in your email. If you would like to be a regular contributor with blog access and possibly an on air personality please include your name, contact information, a brief background, what level of involvement you expect to give, and any questions you have.
