NCR seeks new Young Voices columnists

The National Catholic Reporter is looking for writers under the age of 30 to join our weekly online award-winning 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 (7,500 subscribers) and our Facebook (285,000 likes) and Twitter (29,000 followers) pages. Columns are also sometimes reprinted in the print edition of NCR.  

To apply, please send a resume, two 500-word sample columns and three ideas for future columns to Stephanie Yeagle at with the subject "Young Voices application." Deadline to apply is March 1.
