Writing on Paganism helps journalist earn award

Freelance writer and religion journalist Kimberly Winston won this year's American Academy of Religion journalism award in the category of "news outlets with more than 100,000 circulation or on the Web."

Her work has included writing on Wicca and Paganism, including a piece that I linked to earlier.

The AAR's magazine notes, "Winston, from Pinole, California, submitted articles on a number of topics: the mainstreaming of Wicca, whether the the influence of the movie The Passion of the Christ was what was feared or hoped for; the campaigning politicians' use of Puritan theology; the trend of modern pagans [sic] reviving ancient religions; and how non-Christians are fighting to save Christmas."
