Hi there, I am writing a book for Columbia University Press on "coming out as atheist" and am still looking for submissions that can speak to identity intersections (race/culture and atheism), aging, workplace issues, romantic relationships, and community building.
Please consider submitting a piece! More details here:
I'd love to submit. When is this due?
Wonderful! It is due by August 1st. Details can be found here:
Wish I had a more interesting story. I came out to my parents when I was 14 or so. I don't even remember details. All of my girlfriends have known I was an atheist, going into the relationships.
Yes! Pieces can definitely be submitted anonymously or with a pen name.
When I saw this it really sunk in. I was never indoctrinated. I haven't had a second of my life I believed.
They tried with me, but it never took. I have vague memories of being 5 or 6, not believing the stories they told us in Sunday school.
