Editorial Focus

The Good Men Project was founded by Tom Matlack in 2009. The editors set out to collect stories about the defining moments in men’s lives. Over the years, the Good Men Project has grown into a diverse community that is actively participating in a conversation about the way men’s roles are changing in modern life—and the way those changes affect everyone.

Tips From the Editor

We explore the world of men and manhood in a way that no media company ever has, tackling the issues and questions that are most relevant to men’s lives. We write about fatherhood, family, sex, ethics, war, gender, politics, sports, pornography, and aging. Our content reflects the multidimensionality of men: we are alternatively funny and serious, provocative and thoughtful, earnest and light-hearted. And we do it without moralizing; we let guys be guys, but we do it while challenging confining cultural notions of what a “real man” must be.

While we don’t necessarily want “easy” poetry, we prefer work that is accessible and engaging. We like imagistic work, fresh language, concreteness, and a strong emotional core.
