“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” ~ Maya Angelou
Express your Self on Rebelle Society.
We want to see anything and everything—new creations, established debuts, restless creativity in any form, photography, journalistic examinations, wellness phenomenons, 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.
Send a little piece of your self to [email protected].
1) Please include (in one email) your submission via an attachment (preferably Word), a short bio in third person (she / he with a maximum of 150 words) and a high-resolution mug shot.
2) We love to preview blogs, but would prefer that you send us one of your favorites to review instead.
3) If you include images for our consideration, please credit appropriately.
4) Word count — we’re all about quality over quantity, but aim for at least 400 words whether it’s a story, photography, tips & tricks, etc.
Response time for submissions: please expect up to and around 30 days for a response regarding your submission. Save your energy — you don’t have to check-in beforehand. You should receive an auto-response receipt upon sending your submission to the email address above.
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 adjust, 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.
Here are a few questions our pieces should answer with a Yes, before we hang them on this virtual wall:
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 they can be recycled into more wisdom. A good story — whatever the genre – awakens us to our own reality.
Does it inspire?
Life is short. We really have no time for what doesn’t, we’re already drowning in unnecessary information. So we must fight the blues with inspiration.
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.
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.
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. He’ll be happy to chew it off. And if you love it, then drop the proud modesty, believe in your greatness and share it with a starving world.
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.”

Book or Music Promotions.
We also try to accommodate newly published books and musicians that want to promote their work and music on Rebelle Society. If you fall into that category and if you’re open to sharing the story behind your book or music, email us at [email protected].
We’ll get back to you with our rates and details of the agreement.
For books, we will share up to 2,000 words and will ask for your bio, bio photo and book purchasing details.
For music, we will ask you to write at least a 400 word intro and will ask for your bio, bio photo and music sharing details.
