Contact me on the email address below, but please do not add me to a mailing list without my permission; my inbox is an absolute shambles. My DMs are open on Twitter too.
I never ever accept guest posts on The Guyliner, so please don’t ask, as I won’t reply.
theguyliner [at] gmail [dot] com
Email me at theguyliner [at] gmail [dot] com. Unfortunately, due to volume of requests, I can’t reply to everyone – you’ll get an automated reply telling you so – but if it’s something that’s right for my readers, I will get back to you. It’s best to have a clear story idea, or a compelling, fresh angle that makes the potential column useful, informative, and shareable. Dating, sex and relationships, work stuff, mental health, and navigating being a modern man (and not an arsehole) especially useful.
Where have you been all my life? Email me immediately at theguyliner [at] gmail [dot] com. I can write about almost anything except football – unless you’re looking for 1200 words on why I hate it so much.
If you simply can’t live until you’ve counted my wrinkles in person, then perhaps consider holding some kind of event which I can appear at, or speak in. I talk about the usual stuff any of my readers would come to expect. And, no, I don’t have a Yorkshire accent of any description so if you’re a northerner fetishist, you might be better off with Mel B. I enjoy the absolute terror of doing live radio but I only do paid opportunities as all… this [gestures vaguely in direction of clapped-out body] is quite literally my only source of income.
My literary agent is Becky Thomas at Lewinsohn Literary. Clara Diaz at Little, Brown is in charge of all publicity for THE FAKE-UP, THE MAGNIFICENT SONS and THE LAST ROMEO, so if you want me to do something re those, then holler in her very efficient direction: email@example.com
I get asked about this a lot – usually from people who have never seen a photograph of me tbh – but it’s not something I really do, unless it’s something I am absolutely sure my readers are interested in. Even then, it wouldn’t be on this site, anyway, but my socials only. I won’t just plug anything so do consider my reach (modest but valuable to me), audience (intelligent and also very valuable to me) and my own moral code (I have nothing to add here) before contacting me about any opportunities.
I don’t have an advice column anymore and unfortunately the level of personal correspondence I was getting was getting unmanageable so I’ve had to give up answering reader dilemmas for now. I’m not saying don’t write to me, just that I might not be able to reply – and if I don’t, it’s not personal.
If you’re LGBT and need emergency advice and can’t wait for a reply, get in touch with Switchboard – they’re awesome.
Want to know more about me?
The blog was anonymous for a variety of reasons – mainly because I’m extra af – but I’ll happily answer any queries. Just email me on theguyliner[at]gmail[dot]com. My real name is Justin – don’t wear it out. Also, for the last time, no, I do not accept guest posts.
If you’d rather your email didn’t appear in anything I write on this blog or any other publication I work for, please specify ‘NOT FOR PUBLICATION’. Otherwise, I may use it in some way (not in a horrible way).
