Homer is an online space that wants to shine a light on masculinity and add a whole mess of depth to what role models for men look like.
Please refer to this brief snippet of the submission guidelines:
"First of all, if your submission to Homer is accepted, you’ll be paid for your work.
The rates will vary depending on how flush we are, but we’re committed to paying for all the work we publish.
Second, we not only accept submissions from anyone, we also want submissions from everyone: men, women, LGBTIQA writers, CALD and ethnically diverse writers.
Homer is about masculinities, which does not mean it’s by men or even purely for them. Masculinities affect everyone – positively, negatively, differently. However you’ve encountered them, every angle is needed to create as robust and kaleidoscopic a picture of masculinities as they deserve (and sorely need).
Third, we’re looking to create a particular kind of conversation at Homer and we want every piece on the site to contribute to it.
Broadly speaking, that means pieces that lend insight into positive and negative experiences with mainstream and non-mainstream masculinities. It could be social commentary, comedic literature review, an outright hagiography of a wonderful and unusual man or anything else, but before submitting, ask yourself if it lends something to public dialogues around men and masculinities that isn’t out there already.
Fourth, here’s what we’re looking for more specifically:
– Personal essays
– Think pieces
We DO NOT publish:
