We are now accepting stories for a groundbreaking book for atheists. A Time to Come Out: Revealing Non-Belief in a Theistic World is slated for nationwide release in Spring 2012.
Hiding a part of your life from your family, friends, and colleagues is an overwhelming burden. This anthology of coming out stories from non-theists seeks to inspire those who are still living in silence to come out. In your story, remember to focus on coming out. What sparked your coming out? How did you feel? What was the experience and outcome like for you?
