If you have interest in men, have the discipline to write a post a day, and want the benefits of writing for a large, engaged and growing platform, consider joining The Good Men Project team.
If writing about manhood in any form appeals to you, we’d love for you to become a regular blogger. You will get a terrific platform (the total network is steadily growing, but right now gets 3.2 million pageviews a month) and an opportunity to help shape the publication. There really is no limit to what you can blog about, as long as it relates in some way to things that men care about—or should care about. Are you on a quest to become a better man? That would make a great topic for a series of blog posts. Do you want to blog about sports, sex, relationships, politics, friendship, addiction/recovery, cars, cooking, spirituality, fatherhood, divorce, movies, the environment, or how your anger-management classes are going? Terrific. We’re not looking for clichéd pieces about men as an inflexible monolith. So don’t write that. Go deeper. Be funny. Be sad. But be original. First person narratives that lead to some deeper, universal truths are always welcome here. Check out our about page if you want to learn more about who we are and how we’ve grown.
If you, or someone you know, is interested in becoming a blogger at The Good Men Project, please email [email protected] with a pitch. We’ll want to know what your particular slant is, what you want to write about, and how you expect to do it. Some sense of your writing (and life) experience would help too along with your social media platform, if you have one. But there are no particular requirements other than a good idea and brutal honesty and, hopefully, a sense of humor.
