Jen McCreight is a lifelong non-theist, but became vocal about her atheism when she started college at Purdue University. Surprised and alienated by the highly religious atmosphere, she co-founded the Society of Non-Theists for like-minded students. During this time she also started to blog at Blag Hag, a popular atheist blog, which became infamous partially thanks to "Boobquake." Jen graduated from Purdue University in 2010 in Genetics and Evolution, and is working towards her PhD in Genome Sciences at the University of Washington. She is now on the Board of Directors of the SSA. Her writing isn't limited to her blog, having written articles for The Daily Beast, The Guardian, and a piece for the American edition of The Atheist's Guide to Christmas.
Jen is happy to take suggestions for topics, but in the past has given talks on:
- "My Trip to the Creation Museum" - a humorous virtual tour highlighting and debunking its wackiness
- "Edgy Yet Friendly" - how to create interesting, media-attracting atheist events while minimizing offense
- Women and feminism and how they interact with atheism and skepticism
- Atheist blogging
Jen asks for a $100 honorarium for speaking events.
