Religion Newswriters Association

Founded in 1949, the Religion Newswriters Association (RNA) works "to advance the professional standards of religion reporting in the secular press as well as to create a support network for religion reporters." Their site is a great place for current members of the RNA, but in many ways it's just as good for those who wish to cut their teeth in this important area of journalism. To start, visitors with an interest in the field may wish to read and download "Reporting on Religion: A Primer on Journalism's Best Beat". The primer offers a basic overview of reporting on religion, along with resources about potential pitfalls. Moving on, the site also has a set of "Best Practices", which includes such down-to-earth advice as "Rely on people power" and "Remain calm amid conflict". The site also includes a section on reporting contests, training opportunities, and a link where visitors can sign up to receive the latest religion news via email.
