Are you interested in shaping the dialogue of what it means to be a good man? Do you have a way with words? The Good Men Project wants you! Yes, you!
Riding the wave of one our heaviest traffic months to date, the Good Men Project is recruiting new editors to join the amazing staff that brings you hits every day. This is the same staff that is the reason why The Good Men Project was listed as one of the factors that is leading to the decline of “lad mags” by The Atlantic magazine. Here’s more on what they had to say:
And a deeper change was afoot, too: Men actually began to think more deeply about what it meant to be men. Part of that was due to a decreased social tolerance for sexual aggression, combined with a growing recognition for how popular culture fosters the very same. Social tropes like the metrosexual – remember that? – were a tacit approval of homosexual style and a rejection of the beefcake machismo proffered by Maxim and its ilk. Meanwhile, sites like The Good Men Project, founded in 2009, have offered a rejoinder to Maxim, with men now writing about male issues beyond whether Bar Rafaeli is hotter than Irina Shayk.
Being an editor is one of the best ways to becoming a better writer or blogger. It’ll give you the necessary experience and knowledge to integrate with social media, spread a story and speak directly to your audience. You’ll learn that all writers have quirks, and along the way, discover your own. All the while, while you’re working at The Good Men Project, you’ll be a step ahead of the rest of the world in the dialogue of what it means to be a good man. In fact, you’ll be directly shaping how that dialogue takes place.
If you, or someone you know, is interested in becoming an editor at The Good Men Project, please email Noah Brand at [email protected] and Lisa Hickey at [email protected] Some sense of your editing (and life) experience would help, along with your social media platform, if you have one. WordPress experience is a plus, but is not necessary to apply. We’d love for you to come equipped good ideas, brutal honesty and, hopefully, a sense of humor.
We are particularly looking for Editors for the following sections: Ethics and Values, Business, Health Psychology & Addiction, Adventure & Travel, and our Good Feed News Blog.
