NCR seeks new Young Voices columnists

The National Catholic Reporter is looking for writers under the age of 30 to join our weekly online Young Voices column.

Young Voices writers pen a 1,000-word column once every six weeks or so as part of a rotation with other columnists. Topics are up to the author, but pieces with a religious bent are preferred. (This does not always mean strictly Catholic reflections; wider Christian reflections or thoughts on spirituality are also acceptable.)

We pay per column and promote our Young Voices writers through a weekly email alert (5,000 subscribers) and our Facebook (30,000 likes) and Twitter (15,000 followers) pages. Columns are also sometimes reprinted in the print edition of NCR.

Support Catholic journalism. Join our new membership program for as little as $5 a month.

To apply, please send a resume, two 500-word sample columns and three ideas for future columns to Pam Cohen at pcohen@ncronline.org with the subject "Young Voices application." Deadline to apply is April 1.


Just $5 a month supports NCR's independent Catholic journalism.

We are committed to keeping our online journalism open and available to as many readers as possible. To do that, we need your help. Join NCR Forward, our new membership program.
