Looking for Writers!

<RuPaul>Hello, hello, hello!</RuPaul>

It’s that time again! A few of the sister sites on the Skepchick Network are looking for writers. Interested? All gigs at Skepchick are voluntary and provide no monetary compensation, but you will be paid in thanks and hugs and friendship! And maybe rainbows and unicorns! All positions require small time commitments that vary by position. See below for specific site announcements and contact information.

Skepchick Events

Skepchick Events is looking for writers to blog about events of interest to skeptics, atheists, humanists, freethinkers, etc., as well as events-related information. For example, posts about starting groups, interviews with group leaders, ways to increase diversity at events, making groups and events more friendly to all ages, accessibility at events, fundraising, activism, geek event cross-over, and so forth.

No group or events experience is required as long as you can write, are a skeptic, and have an interest in learning more about events or about a particular category within events (such as family-friendly events or groups).
