Website Seeks Soft News, Features on Mil-Topics

An established, military-focused entertainment website has called for articles of interest to service members, military-adjacent, and general audiences. The website notably avoids hard news, politics, or "anything that tries to polarize veterans."

"We are looking for experienced, dynamic writers to inspire, inform and entertain our diverse audience with original, military-related content," editors write at "We Are the Mighty." Suggested topics include:

  • Military Entertainment
  • Tactical
  • Sports
  • Military Families
  • Military Finance
  • Military Influencers

Established in 2014 by Dave Gale, "We Are the Mighty" is a paying market, but contributor rates are not published on the website. Following a "journalistic" business and editorial submissions model, contributors are invited to pitch ideas to editors via an e-mail query.

An extensive proprietary style-guide is also listed under contributors' guidelines. Editors have additionally provided an annotated list of nine types of items that perform well on their website. These archetypes include:

  • The "laid-back professor"
  • The "culture clash"
  • Cool military gear
  • "Hero from history"
  • The "pep rally"
  • The "fight card"
  • The "heartwarmer"
  • The listicle
  • Story of Valor
  • "Debate/anger therapy"
  • News item
