What topics would you like to see on The Good Men Project? We want to create Writing Prompts and Calls for Submissions on subjects that YOU care about!
Here are some ideas but we would really like people—you, our reader—to add to this list.
• Parenting in a time when your kids often appear smarter than you.
• Do you see a movement towards people NOT watching sports on TV, and going out and doing things, instead? If so, explain.
• Have you ever felt disenfranchised — no matter the color or your skin, or whether the marginalization was “pc” or not. If so, explain.
• How do you build your own communities?
• How have the changes in the economy affected you as a man?
• Do you worry that you can’t keep up with technology? If so, how do you deal with it?
• CTE/concussions, football and the disposability of men.
• Married friends with kids friendships with single friends—how can it work long run?
• Even though I’m a middle aged white guy, I feel marginalized and disenfranchised by society when men’s issues, some of them may be mine also, but nevertheless, are not taken seriously. I know a lot of men feel that way. What can we do about it?
• Are “livable” mental illnesses, like severe anxiety or chronic depression, somehow at odds with goodness? Balancing taking care of yourself versus taking care of others.
• How is your, my, our safe ground shrinking? Like the polar bear on a melting ice cap?
• What are your strategies to form networks of people who can help you?
• Men gather, from what I’ve seen, at the bar and at a sports event. Why is that?
• Approaching the end of your career when you’re nowhere near retirement. Something a lot of men are facing or, sadly, choosing not to.
If you don’t want to write an essay or article, please share your ideas in the comments below.
You might also want to read “What We Talk About When We Talk About Men” — a post that frames the bigger conversation about what we are talking about here.
The Good Men Project is different from most media companies. We are a “participatory media company”—which means we don’t just have content you read and share and comment on but it means we have multiple ways you can actively be a part of the conversation. As you become a deeper part of the conversation (Which really is “The Conversation No One Else is Having”), you will learn all of the ways we support our Writer’s Community—community FB groups, weekly conference calls, classes in writing, editing platform building and more.
Here are more ways to become a part of The Good Men Project community:
