This is the group for the weekend fiction section of The Good Men Project Magazine.
Here's the general description from goodmenproject.com:
First, we’re trying to make the world a better place. Seriously. In that pursuit, we give 25 percent of our profits to organizations that help at-risk boys.
Second, we’re trying to redefine what a men’s magazine can be. Sure, we write about sports. Yes, we write about sex (although we do it without selling sex). But unlike so many other men’s magazines, we don’t patronize or caricaturize our audience. We try to bring out the best in men, and we do that by producing content that challenges men to think deeply—and to talk about the things they don’t usually talk about.
With a name like the Good Men Project, some folks assume that we’re going to tell men how to be good. This assumption has led at least one media critic to suggest that we might be a “conservative culty thing.” Others have called us “feminists” because, we suspect, we celebrate, publish, and appear to be very popular with women. (Ms. Magazine said we are “what enlightened masculinity might look like in the 20th Century.”)
We suppose we are a difficult magazine to categorize, and that’s exactly how we like it. We’re not interested in telling men how they should go about living their lives, nor are we intent on promoting a certain “image” of masculinity. We’re interested instead in creating a community where men (and the women who love us) can talk openly and honestly about their lives.http://goodmenproject.com/
