ChaplainUSA Seeks Writers
Who we are:
We are ChaplainUSA, a non-profit educational organization for chaplains.
[A chaplain is someone who provides spiritual guidance and counseling to those in need. There are many kinds of chaplains: hospital chaplains, police or fire chaplains, military chaplains.]
What we do:
We help keep chaplains informed. For instance, we tell them about
new technologies for responding to a natural disaster
breakthroughs in treating PTSD
new strategies for coping with stress or grief
In short, information that helps chaplains help others.
The way we do it
Chaplains are really, really busy; so we make new information manageable.
We scour the web, pick out the best ideas and present it in a more conversational, easy-to-digest format – typically in the form of a Chaplain Summary.
What is a Chaplain Summary?
A Chaplain Summary is an approx. 600 word brief.
It highlights the core information, provides the key takeaways and provides a clear call to action that offers chaplains a way to learn more.
[We always cite the source material and provide links to relevant content and organizations mentioned in the summary. Articles to be summarized will be assigned.]
Keep the writing conversational and direct. Chaplains are a practicable bunch, they're looking for information they can use on the job.
Make the Summary easy to scan and digest, using sub-heads and bullet points to break the info into sections.
