Humanist Network News

 

Humanist Network News, or HNN, is a weekly Internet magazine produced by the American Humanist Association (AHA). A typical edition of HNN contains news, opinion, lifestyle pieces, cartoons and humor...just like a regular newspaper except each piece addresses the nonreligious philosophy of humanism. HNN articles are written by the staff of the AHA and a variety of guest writers. HNN is published every Wednesday.

MESSAGE FROM THE EDITOR: The Last Humanist Network News You’ll Ever Read

Posted February 05, 2014

Okay—maybe that title is a little alarmist. But it’s true—this week, Humanist Network News will be undergoing some major renovations! But I’m confident you’ll be pleased with the new and improved HNN when its hosted on its own website, making it ten times easier to search for your favorite articles, read the latest from your favorite writers, and get up-to-the-minute commentary from the American Humanist Association on breaking news. Don’t worry, your favorites will still be there—poetry, comics, The Ethical Dilemma, articles by stellar writers such as Janet Asimov and Marty Klein, and we’re already incorporating ideas many of you contributed in last month’s call for feedback. Keep an eye out in your inbox for a brand-new email from me next week to see the exciting changes!
