Vote BULL, Support Michigan Literature

By Chris Siciliano (with help from Tim Chilcote)

BULL: Men’s Fiction, a literary journal run by Buzz contributor and Michigan blogger Tim Chilcote, needs your help. BULL is one of five finalists vying for 100K in funding through the Dockers “Wear the Pants” contest. BULL needs YOUR VOTES*—one a day, every day this week—to win this unprecedented sum for an independent literary journal.

With your vote and $100,000 in-pocket, BULL will carry on the literary traditions of Michigan writers like Ernest Hemingway and Jim Harrison, and lend support to a new generation of talented Great Lakes authors. Ultimately BULL intends to grow into a full-scale publishing house, one providing good men (and women, too) with consistently good fiction, no different than the way our favorite breweries provide us all with consistently good beer.

I first met BULL’s managing editor, Tim Chilcote, in an English class at Western Michigan University. Tim and I were roommates in Prague during our time abroad (pivo anyone?), and roommates again in Portland, Oregon during our lean, post-collegiate years. I know Tim well and can say with confidence that no person is more deserving of this money and your vote.

I also happen to believe wholeheartedly in BULL's mission: simply put, to get men reading again. It's a worthy objective and one that, I admit, as a contributing writer to BULL, I have a personal interest in seeing pan out.

The campaign is run through BULL’s editor-in-chief, Jarrett Haley. He's the passionate lad in the video below (look for his mug on the voting page as well).

To learn more about the contest and BULL visit or go straight to vote through the Dockers Facebook app:

*A note from Tim: Unfortunately, voting takes place on a third-party Facebook application, so you need to “like” Dockers and allow Levi’s access to your most basic profile info. I would only offer that khaki pants are much more trustworthy than Facebook itself, so you’ve no need to worry any more than usual.
