Soapbox On Loan! Call for Submissions

A great opportunity for pagan writers and crafters 😀


Atheopaganism is getting pretty big. It won’t be long before the Facebook community crosses 2,000 members, and our path is now a topic of conversation and familiarity in many Pagan circles all over the world.

Each of us does it a little differently, and that is exactly as should be: our celebrations of the Wheel of the Year will vary based on the climate and ecology of where we live, and our personal aesthetics and interests will naturally color and inform our practices.

It has always been my goal that this space be not “my megaphone”, but instead a place where we can share what is interesting about our Atheopagan practices and discoveries. Although I have a role in Atheopaganism, we’re creating it together.

Your voice is an important contributor.

I welcome you to submit pieces of 500-1200 words to me at atheopagan [AT] comcast [DOT] net. Potential topics might…

Tucker Grooms, a high school student in Marin County, California, found that he was constantly picking up litter while surfing on the beach. In September 2018, he launched a nonprofit, Barrel Bag, which manufactures and distributes eco-friendly and reusable mesh bags that make it easier for people to pick up trash while exploring the coastline. His WordPress website,, has become the online hub of the organization.

Each year, about 8 million metric tons of plastic end up in the ocean. “The problem of plastic pollution in the ocean is enormous,” says Tucker. “It only takes a single person to have an impact, which is exactly why I started Barrel Bag.” Since its launch last year, Barrel Bag has distributed over 6,250 bags, and continues to expand by partnering with socially minded organizations across California and beyond, including local chambers of commerce, regional tourism associations, and nonprofits like 1%…
