Your story matters. Whether you think your life has been a total drag or you think no one will care. You have something to share with the world. We’d like it in writing, please.
There are certain people who seem to live a life that’s worth writing a memoir or a making a movie about. There are some people who can’t help but fall into situations that garner massive attention. You don’t have to be one of those people to have a good story to tell. A story that has meaning and will change someone’s life.
Your story is who you are. Even if you think you’re a boring person, I would be willing to bet there is something interesting about you. Or something you’ve experienced that could alter someone’s perspective on life.
Some people say that fiction writing helps teach us a little more about what it means to be human. I believe this is true. But it’s not the words on the paper that speak to you or anyone else. It’s the resonance. The way the words make you feel. The way they make you remember your past or dream about your future.
Writing is to some people what painting, or running, or playing video games is to others. It’s therapeutic. It makes one stop and ponder about how to convey the emotion that’s dripping from the fingertips.
The greatest thing about being an editor/writer at The Good Men Project is the love that people have for telling their story. Telling the story of what it means to be a man in the 21st century. These people telling stories come from all different backgrounds. You don’t have to be a man to read or write articles for us. You don’t have to be an Ivy League-educated writer with a master’s in fine arts.
The only qualification we have for you to submit an article is that you are passionate about something we talk about and that you’re willing to tell your story.
Help us continue this conversation that no one else is having.
