Updates for 2021!
Comrades and fellow disciples,
It’s been quiet in our little corner of the internet as of late. We’re a small team at WCC so when crisis strikes (like a global pandemic and struggles in our personal lives) we have to adjust our publishing expectations for the sake of our wellbeing and the other work in which our members participate. For many of us, 2020 was a mess—but let’s not dwell on the year that was. It’s time to dive into 2021 with a few updates and a plan for this new year!
First, our core membership has become a bit thinner. We’ve said goodbye to Chase Tibbs, one of our founding members. He had one hell of a year and needed to rethink his priorities. We love Chase and we’re already nudging him to write with us in the future. Of course, Chase remains connected to WCC because he’s our comrade, but is no longer a decision making member of the collective. You can still hear from Chase at the podcast ‘Faith and Capital’ where he’s doing really meaningful work.
Olivia and Chris remain committed to bringing out thoughtful reflections on Christian faith and by workers in the struggle to transform the world. In addition to publishing our own articles this year, we’ve decided to invite articles from guests as well! As a team we’ll approve articles to be published on the WCC platform. Do you have any ideas you’d like to put ‘out there’? Here’s your chance!
Here are a few expectations we have for guest posts:
Centered on themes of revolutionary working class politics, Christian faith, and liberation theology (Come on, read our other articles. You’ll get the idea)
Written for working class people, not the academy. This isn’t to say that working class people aren’t capable of rigorous thought, but we don’t want professional jargon unless terms are made clear in the article itself. We’re committed to creating content for the people.
Anti-Imperialist, Anti-Racist, Anti-Colonialist. We’re not suggesting that only one tendency of socialist can write for us, but we won’t put anything out that affirms global systems of domination. Guess we’re authoritarian in that way. Deal with it.
At this time we can offer no compensation other than the satisfaction of having your work out there for others to discuss.

Even now, friends, the spirit of God is stirring among the people. Join us on the journey to reflect on the way of the cross in this new year!
In solidarity and in Christ,
