Volunteer publication opportunity for students — The Religious Observer

I'm writing on behalf of The Religious Observer, an online publication about religions! We are in the process of starting up, and we're looking for founding editors to join our team.

Would any of your religious studies or journalism students be interested? We are starting off with divisions for Buddhism, Christianity, Daoism, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, and Sikhism, and each one needs an editor!

We are a non-profit group, so we are all working as volunteers. (These aren't paid jobs.) We're just hoping to produce an interesting, educational publication about religion!
