Want To Share Your He{art}?

Express yourself on Rebelle Society & join our courageous movement:

Take some time to make yourself comfy here on RebelleSociety.com — get to know our key messages, voice, tone and vibe. We don’t care where you come from, how old you are or how many degrees you have or don’t have, we just want what is real, what is human and more than anything, we want to feel.

We want to be moved — period.

And we want the best quality — exclamation point.

We want to experience what it took for you to spill your beautiful guts. We want to feel our tippy toes tickling life’s creative edge, the ferocious courage nudging our backs and the insane risk it took when you jumped — without over-thinking and without worrying what anyone will think — and then we want the words to swim inside our bodies for days, perhaps even the rest of our lives.

Make us want to talk about it. Make us want to sing about it. And make us want to share your story with everyone who matters.

Help us to dream the world awake — we want expression that has a pulse and is willing to shake, stir and howl.

Show us the world as you’d love to see it.

We want sweet, savory, tragic, simple, wicked, intelligent and original. We want what makes you tick and we want it to be told in your voice. We don’t care if the story has been written before, we want your version. Whether it’s your knack for clarity, your rhythmical prose or your clever use of adverbs, adjectives and metaphors, let you seep through every word and into the windows of our Soul.

Leave us breathless.

Remind us that there are hearts thumping in our chests!

Remind us why we’re here, dammit!

We want to see anything and everything — new creations, established debuts, restless creativity in any form, photography, journalistic examinations, wellness phenomena, musical tributes, magical reenactments, confessions of love, performances on video, dance, poetry and stuff we can’t even predict.

So, if you’re already living like a work of art or if you have just begun to explore the realms of your unique expression and want to show it off, please contact us. There is no limit to our combined madness.

We cannot wait to witness and share your authentic, magnificent creations, all spell-checked and in high-resolution.

So go on, show us your beauty.

We are honored to receive each and every submission. Please know that even if we don’t publish your work, we have read it and are grateful to have gotten the privilege to do so.

So if you’re ready, send a little piece of yourself to create@rebellesociety.com.

Submission Guidelines:

1. Please include (in one email) your submission via an attachment (preferably Word or the body of an email — absolutely no PDFs), a short bio in third person (she/he, with a maximum of 150 words) and a high-resolution mug shot (64×64 minimum pixels and a perfect square)) to create@rebellesociety.com. If you forget something, don’t send it in parts — resend all of it in one package and let us know in the subject line. We won’t chase you for missing pieces.

2. We love to preview blogs, but would prefer that you send us one of your favorites to review instead — not as a link but as it’s stated in #1 above.

3. If you include images for our consideration, please credit appropriately and ensure they are high resolution.

4. Word count — we’re all about quality over quantity, but aim for at least 500 words (and preferably no longer than 1400 words) whether it’s a story, photography, tips & tricks, etc.

5. For videos, spoken word audio and other short-film-esque creations, please see Rebelle TV & Broadcast guidelines below.

6. We don’t want material that has been published on other publications — your personal blog not included. You can read more about this in our Terms & Conditions.

Response time for submissions:

You should receive an auto-response upon sending your submission to the email address above. If accepted, guest articles can take approximately 5-7 weeks to go live.

Please do not check in before this date. Due to the large number of submission, our editors will only get in touch with you if there are any additional questions regarding your work and/or to notify you on the day it is published.

Fair Warning:

We’re picky. We have a specific purpose, style & mission and we stick by it even when we’re not vomiting rainbows. We often reject our own writing when we wake up on the wrong side of the bed, with scissors instead of fingers.

So, if your submission doesn’t work for us right now, it doesn’t mean we don’t love it. It just means we love you more and we’ll be happy to suggest a better fit. We love re-writes, re-examinations and hearts that just won’t stop answering the call to create, do and express. So take your time with everything. We’ll be here and we’ll keep the light on.

Here are a few questions our pieces should answer with a Yes, before we hang them on this virtual wall:

1. Is it socially relevant? Does it add to society in some way?

We love personal stories but only when they transcend the diary format and can be recycled into more wisdom. A good story — whatever the genre — awakens us to our own reality. So we want your personal story polished and refined. We want it unabashedly and beautifully delivered in the absolute best articulation you could squeeze from your body.

2. Does it inspire?

Life is short. We really have no time for what doesn’t, we’re already drowning in unnecessary information. So we fight the blues with inspiration. In other words: make it count. Like your life depends on it. Give us everything you have in that moment — don’t hold back a single drop. Create as if it was your last declaration of life as life on earth.

3. Does it have Creativity as a spoken (or unspoken) common denominator?

The point is to create our purpose, not to find it, to help each other think outside the box. To redefine reality, not accept it without questioning. We’re all coated in a delusional mundane. Use all parts of you to deliver (and remind us of) the extra in the ordinary.

4. Does it have your signature, your personal touch, your self, you in it?  

Even if you’re sharing an indirect creation, we need to “see” You somewhere in it. And we prefer real-and-broken over pretended-and-fabricated. We don’t want anything contrived or synthetic. Weave your DNA into it, leave a few drops of your blood, sweat and tears — as only you can.

5. Do you love it?

If you don’t love it, chances are the readers won’t either, so you might as well give it to your dog as a gesture of love. He’ll be happy to chew it off. But if you love it, then drop the proud modesty, believe in your greatness and share it with a starving world. Nourish us all with your words. Don’t hold back. Not now. Now ever.

Whatever the case, never give up on your art. As Maya Angelou put it, “A bird doesn’t sing because it has an answer; it sings because it has a song.”

MAYAANGELOU

There are several reasons to share your he{art} on Rebelle Society:

Are you wondering why you should share your goods on the world’s hottest online hub for reporting virtual acts of creative rebellion (and inner freedom)? We don’t think you need convincing, but just in case:

  • You’ll change lives. You’ll not only inspire and improve the quality of the way in which we perceive, nourish and participate in life as life, but you’ll become part of a vast and growing, insanely supportive community that consists of all walks of life. Not everyone here is a writer or is interested in writing, but has an infatuation with truthful, life-passionate expression. And there are no requirements to be a part of our tribe or to even call yourself what you already are: art, in its most unique form. So welcome home!
  • You’ll add waves and lengths to your resume and professional repertoire. You’ll be getting YOU out there. Sharing the expression closest and dearest to your heart is a magnet for expansion and success. Many of our writers have built their foundation here on Rebelle Society — have been offered publishing deals, have found dream collaborators and have been moved to clarify and refine their art to the point of becoming coaches, teachers and guides — just by sharing what has meant the most to them.
  • You’ll get the support from an extraordinary team. From editors to social media, our professional staff of experienced creatives will help you to be SEEN by the most number of people possible.

Rebelle TV

NEW: We want to see & talk to you! 

Are you ready to be seen and heard on Rebelle Society? The next awesome chapter of this creative empire is going to bring you live and in your face he{art}. Our intention is to make creative sharing inclusive and enjoyable through authentic and original videos, clips, spoken word, recorded existential blips and whatever other visually stimulating creative concoctions your goofball, rebellious brains come up with. And we want them to be epic.

To submit — please include your life-altering video, a title, a minimum 400-word intro, a short bio in third person (she/he, with a maximum of 150 words) and a high-resolution mug shot (64×64 minimum pixels and a perfect square) to create@rebellesociety.com.

In addition, our Behind The Scenes team will also be sharing their personal take on worldly and heartfelt issues. We will offer you the tools to unlock your heart, ammunition to free your imagination and inspiration to help you enjoy life even more.

We want to inspire you to keep creating and sharing — and we want you to know that your rebellious tribe supports and he{art)s you.

    Haha- I just realized why I didn’t have a picture like everyone else. Haha- had to read all the fine print first. I am still on the “Oregon Trail” (a computer game played when I was in eighth grade way back in 1987/’88 on the Apple IIe & IIgs that were in our school. Hahaha- I. Other words, I am like 20 years behind on technology. Until recently, I wasn’t living under a rock but was living in an orbital somewhere between the moon and the earth’s atmosphere- haha, so I am new at this modern earthling sh*t. :;))

    love this place. reading everything here instead of watching 70th Annual Golden Globes. spent the week avoiding a lot of shit and then stumbled here where I am told to look at it and break and open and be the author of Me. and all the words are real and, thus far, I have not seen one digital picture of a skinny, long-haired goddess. ok then…I’m in.

    Just found you site and LOVE it already – I want to post some of my poetry. My brainchild was called Poetry on the Edge and I founded it and hosted it for 5 years at Borders Books here in Tampa, FL and we had a core group of about 8 performance poets. We did spoken word at many local venues but unfortunately the poetry scene seems to be dying around here lately. I need to get my creativity spark back and I think this site will do the trick!!!

    I do so want to wake, some morning, with scissors instead of fingers. You make that sound like a bad thing! Think on all of the ways, one could re-invent the world, with scissors, for fingers.

    Finally, the place where true thoughts and feelings seek for asylum. I have found you. It won’t be like the time I found a 5 dollar bill and put it in my wallet, never spent it, treasured it as a sort of amulet, no. This time, I will make something out of it. I will invest time, creativity, and hopefully, pour some my shy and secluded alter ego’s essence. It seems to me that in a world lacking of souls, I have at last find my peers. This is what home should feel like. THANK YOU! ! !

    Amazing! I cannot believe the universe has connected me with you.! My whole life story is about sharing and expressing creativity with a massive emphasis on ‘SELF’ – self express is my website encouraging others to just ‘DO IT’, as easily as inspiration & expression = breathing in & out – we all do it, every moment! I thought I was alone in this desire for realisation and sharing and it has been hard – simplicity seems to lead to the complicated – words – I love them & I hate them, but we need them. My other site is about the more spiritual ‘SELF’ and of course they cannot be separated but its about being unique with expression and united at the same time – all in one perfect circle – pulling it into a straight line is impossible but to find it in words it seems unavoidable. These 2 sites of mine are re-minders for me and my offering is of ‘PRESENCE’ by listening for the ‘self’ – the listening and expressing, form the circle of unity I am exploring. I would love to join you in some way to contribute to this beautiful creative openness. http://www.selfexpress-ur-unique.weebly.com.
  • Pip commented on January 20, 2014 Reply
    Nice one Ruth – we do need to ‘Do’ something – bystanders are brainwashed, which is fine but once washed it would be good to fill the brain with love, compassion, expression, something good, productive . . . . .

    The copy and the Human condition are Idem. To be human is to endure three separate linear moments in existence at differing singularities, person to person. First iconic moment is to be born, secondly raised (possibly the most important), and ultimately the third is to of course die. All the while maintaining and re configuring our ability to think cognitively, except of course in death (unless you are religious or believe in star wars). This ability to “think for ourselves” enables us to combine our animalistic emotional reactions developed over many centuries, with the aforementioned trait of thought. In turn this to date has resulted in knowledge being gathered through means of repetition, trial and through battling the flames of failure. The survival of the future is always at stake in the present moment,right now, much like looking out into space through a telescope our information is ascue and do not shed true light on to the actual events taking place. Much like the human condition often runs its course, knowledge is in the hands of those who control or possess it, however those who control or possess the powerful knowledge of life and peace and equality more often than not are simply incapable of putting forth proper action or course(s) of, either due to garden variety incompetence or simply they chose not to dissuade themselves from whatever current goals or attachments they had pending or deemed more important. Thusly knowledge and history get lost through the ages and we reclaim our human existence on the basis that we increase in perseverance as well as tempo, due to exponential growth of good ideas, and knowledge. One arrives to the zenith of knowledge, the apex of civilizational sprawl; So massive that not even the likes of the legendary librarians of ancient Alexandria could not of envisioned the plethora of knowledge at one’s disposal in the contemporary times of today. This is why baseball is great and there is nothing knew under the sun. Just like Solomon said.

    HOMEAID SUGAR SCRUB Coconut oil Camellia oil & or Jojoba Blend 1/2 tsp essential oil Add Sugar The consistency should be like cooked oatmeal I like coconut oil because it will not clog your drain (it’s water soluble) Use in shower or bath after soaping down. Turn OFF water(H2o shortage) & rub up from feet 2 chin. Now you are exfoliated & skin is nourished for the day. BodyAcne? Add Ttree oil Awakening mng? Add Rosemary/ citrus oil Bedtime? Use Lavender oil. Do not use on face(Sugar is too abrasive)
