There are few venues that publish poetry, fiction and creative nonfiction by atheists, humanists and freethinkers. In an effort to remedy this situation, writer-editors Marilyn Westfall and Michael Jones have paired together to start a new ezine, the Eloquent Atheist.

It's not often that I find wisdom at Jimmy John's. Tasty sandwiches, sure, but not usually wisdom. Today at Jimmy John's I was reading a sign on the wall while waiting for my lunch.

So it's time to go back to school. While a tiny handful of universities do provide a class or two about humanism, most don't.
But the good news is that as of yesterday anyone with an Internet connection anywhere in the world can learn about humanism for free. What's more, you might even be able to get college credit for the courses.
The Continuum of Humanist Education (COHE) is the world's first online, interactive humanist educational program. The Institute for Humanist Studies debuted COHE in 2004 with rave reviews from students and humanist leaders around the world.
But until today, only the introductory courses on humanism were free. Level two classes used to cost users $10, and advanced level courses used to cost users $25.
