Wish they'd hurry up and invent Netflix

We want your stories, so get writing!

Culture

As part of our new Book Club of Man, we want you to send us your stories. Fiction or non-fiction, we don’t care, we just want to hear stories about men and Being A Man.

The Book of Man has now launched The Book Club of Man, not just to confuse our social media strategy, but also to encourage more men to read…
And also write!
Yes, we are going to be publishing fiction and non-fiction stories on the site. Stories written by male and female authors, and journalists, and famous faces, and readers, on the theme of masculinity. What does it mean to be a man today? How has it changed? What illuminating real experiences from your life can you tell us about? Why not do it in the form of a poem? Or fictionalise it? Or run wild with your imagination and do a story on a robot man in the year 3799 named Jeff?
Yes, there’s plenty of scope here, as befitting our site which aims to cover as many different aspects of masculinity as we can, to show there is not one way to Be A Man, but a multitude, and to shed light on aspects of life which are often left unseen. So if you bare yourself in these stories, and dare to take a hard look into the dark corners of your soul, and then dare to share, well, you’ll no doubt get published.

The details:

  • Submit your stories at: bookclub@thebookofman.com
  • Stories must be between 1000-3000 words in length.
  • They must be on word documents.
  • Volume of submissions may mean we are slow to reply but we will be reading everything, so bear with us.

That’s it. We’re greatly looking forward to reading your work.

Here’s a picture of Jack Kerouac writing and going insane, as a visual aid. Looks fun don’t it?
