The Good Men Project
The Good Men Project, an online journal exploring the diversity of modern masculinity, is open year-round to poetry submissions. Previously published work accepted with proper credit and links back to the original publisher. All poems should deal in some way with men or masculinity. That being said, they enthusiastically encourage submissions not just from men, but also from women and people of all gender identities and expressions. Submit up to 10 single-spaced pages by email to Poetry Editor Charlie Bondhus, winner of the 2014 Thom Gunn Award for Gay Poetry from The Publishing Triangle. Bondhus advises, "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. Poems that are heavily experimental, obtuse, or heavily reliant on abstractions probably won't do well with us." Read more suggestions on the guidelines page.
