Call for submissions for new website on masculinities, Homer

Homer, a new website that seeks to shine a light on masculinities, confuse ideas of what it means to be a man and add depth to what role models for men look like, is seeking submissions. Homer invites and encourages writing from women, LGBTIQA writers and writers of all races and CALD backgrounds, but it won’t go far to destigmatising male vulnerability et al. without the public complicity of men. Homer is about men going public with this conversation, in concert with everyone else. Through essays, op–eds, memoir and more, Homer hopes to open masculinity up for discussion and lend shades of grey to the idea of what makes anybody a man. You can find out more at the website,, and direct enquiries, pitches and submissions to founding editor Ashley Thomson at
