pitch call: holy muse

i know you're out there: budding writers, impassioned essayists. if you want to write but have no idea where to submit, here's a place: Holy Muse

it's a digital magazine that just launched and they're looking for contributors.
pitch call below (if you're interested, just go to the site and contact the editors):

If you're interested in any of the themes below, we'd love if it you could send
us a quick line or two summary of the idea by June 21st (for August Issue) and
July 21st (for September Issue). We'll let everyone know the next day who should
proceed. We are only trying to be organized so three of you aren't writing on
the same topic and it ends up that we can't use two of them after you've taken
the time to write.

We'd love to have finished pieces for the August 1 release by July 15 and pieces for the September release by August 15.
...
August In the middle of hurricane season, we're talking about what else... the environment. Big oil, global warming, stewards of the planet, that whole deal... you know it well. Green peace vs green paper. Main articles(where you really tell us how you feel - 1500-2000 words). Bush bashing is easy -feel free to bash but at least have some good substance as well - what we as "truth seekers" are to do in regards to our decaying planet. If it's even decaying...

September It's back to school. Good stories, or opinions about homeschooling, religious schools/education, public schools - why they're good, why they suck - and of course, the whole evolution/creation debate. Should we care, why, and about what
in regards to the existence/creation of the world. Again, for the big articles
1500-2000 words but if you've got some quick thoughts, let us know.

BOTH ISSUES We're always looking for good gripe pieces, media reviews, and/or
anything else that might be on your mind. We're pretty open and you're all great
writers who have good things to say, so if you've got something brewing around,
let us know.

Do they pay?

Thanks for the lead! If I can't get up the gumption to write anything, I'll at least have to check them out.

they didn't mention payment; i'd expect not at first. for my Geez piece i got a free subscription.

that's something.
