Call for Submissions -- Keeping The Faith?

I received this in an email and thought it would be interesting for me and maybe others. If anyone is interested in collaborating, let me know.

To believe or not to believe, that is still the question. From faith to fatwas, rituals to rights, religion plays an increasingly important role in communities at home and throughout the world. This November, INTHEFRAY Magazine ( will explore religion in contemporary society with a special issue dedicated to religious belief. We invite writers and artists to consider the ways that religion and faith impact our world for our November issue. Possible topics to explore include: the role of religion, whether it's in the 2008 U.S. Presidential election, education or international policy; the defense of atheism; the resurgence of creationism; the acceptance of Paganism as an official religion by institutions including the U.S. military. Who are the peacemakers using religion to unite rather than divide? How involved are evangelical Christians in the environmental movement? What goes into the decision by Muslim women whether or not to wear a hijab? Contributors interested in pitching relevant news features, poetry/fiction, cultural criticism, commentary pieces, personal essays, visual essays, travel stories, or book reviews should e-mail us at religion-at-inthefray-dot-org. Send us a well-developed, one-paragraph pitch for your proposed piece NO LATER THAN OCTOBER 1, 2007. First-time contributors are urged to review our submissions guidelines at and review recent pieces published in INTHEFRAY at
