Please find below a message from Jackie Beatty. I'm sending it to the entire list rather than risk inadvertently missing someone who may be potentially interested in this opportunity.

A friend of mine who works for NPS at Fredericksburg Battlefield recently started writing for a new blog, called "Civil Discourse" ( They are looking for guest authors, so she wanted me to reach out to those who might be interested--I'm sure there are at least a few students in the department who would be willing & able to contribute a post or two. They can be contacted directly through their website.
