The Story of Man Alive!

Up until 2008, New Mexico Men’s Wellness produced a quarterly printed journal of men sharing from the heart the joys and problems of being male. Man, Alive! was originally a printed paper publication that was distributed freely in Albuquerque and Santa Fe. Times have changed and production of a quarterly printed publication has become prohibitively expensive, and yet men were still looking for us to revive it.

Calls for submissions will be sent to NMMW members through email. We ask you to contribute and share your work with other men. What you contribute is up to you. Memoirs and biographical sketches, stories, poems, narratives, opinion pieces, sharing of life’s lessons learned, and rants on topics of your choosing are all possible. We also welcome art work and photographs; these can be published on-line in full color.

We also maintain an online archive of Man, Alive! issues that stretch back to 1998. We think you will find these of educational and historic interest; while men’s issues have certainly changed in the digital age, some quandaries remain timeless. We hope that some of these older issues inspire your own contributions.
