If you are sick of today’s portrayals of men as bumbling idiots, of fathers as incompetents, of masculinity as “toxic” then I invite you to send us your best story featuring men at their best.
- Stories showing the masculine virtues in a positive light.
- Stories that introduce or reintroduce young men to the manly virtues.
- Stories that pay homage to men and masculinity.
Well-crafted, immersive stories in all genres (except horror) are welcome, but the manly virtue can’t depend on a speculative element, i.e. magic or superpowers do not make the man. You can have magic. You can have a superhero. But that’s not what makes him a man. It’s not what defines masculinity. No present tense. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re not sure.
