We have pioneered a world-wide, engaging, and sometimes difficult and provocative conversation about men in the 21st century.
Care to join us?
If writing about manhood in any form appeals to you, we’d love for you to become a contributor to The Good Men Project. You will get a an engaged and growing platform (the total network is steadily growing, but right now gets about 5+ million pageviews a month) and an opportunity to help shape the conversation. There really is no limit to what you can what about, as long it is something men might care about (even — or especially — unstereotypical things men might care about). We love first person narratives. Even better are first person narratives that give a personal insight as well as relate to something in the world at large. We’re looking for people to write about sports, relationships, fatherhood, marriage, politics, friendship, addiction/recovery, cooking, spirituality, divorce, movies, the environment, male stereotypes, and the changing roles of men. 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 writer, blogger, contributor (or editor!) at The Good Men Project, please email Noah Brand at [email protected] and Lisa Hickey at [email protected] We’ll want to know why you want to be involved, 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.
Answers to FAQs: a) writers are unpaid. editors get a percentage of the ad revenue they bring in. b) 2 month minimum commitment c) you can always link back to your own blog d) reprints or stuff you’ve written in the past is ok, but the the majority of your posts will need to be unique content e) we will have final editorial say f) yes, we work with many large media companies, have an expansive social media platform and will help push your work outward. g) we have numerous posts that have “gone viral”.
