“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@example.com.
**Submissions: Please include (in one email) your submission via an attachment (preferably Word), a short bio (maximum 150 words) and a high-resolution mug shot. We love to preview blogs, but would prefer that you send us one of our favorites to review instead. If you include images for our consideration, please credit appropriately.**
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.”

On Posting, Reposting & Copyright for text submissions and original material on Rebelle Society.
Rebelle Society reserves the right to edit, alter and update all content of submitted articles and images. Our editorial team remains open to any ideas and suggestions. The writer retains the right to retract the article before publishing.
Reposting on other websites from Rebelle.
When reposting an article that has originally appeared on Rebelle Society, on a different website / online journal:
- Change the title so it doesn’t interfere with google search. Try not to use the same featured image so the post is presented in a new version or style. This will also be beneficial to the other website.
- We also ask that Rebelle Society is credited at the top or bottom of the article as follows:
This article has originally appeared on Rebelle Society.
(Hyperlink the original URL to the words Rebelle Society.)
Reposting on Rebelle from other Websites.
If not noted otherwise, we assume that an article submitted to Rebelle Society has not previously been shared on another platform or publication—the only exception to this being the author’s personal website. If so, it is the author’s responsibility to notify us so we can appropriately credit the article.
Writers publishing on Rebelle Society have the responsibility to ensure that they have all the rights to any content (copy or imagery) they plan to submit before it is submitted. Rebelle Society is not responsible for any copyright infringement on submissions. If copyrights are violated, we will remove or properly credit the article immediately upon notification.
It also falls under the author’s responsibility to get informed about the original website’s reposting and copyright policies, before submitting an already published article to Rebelle Society, and duly notify us.
If an article has previously been posted on your website/blog, and then submitted to Rebelle Society, it is not considered as an official repost or reshare, and it will still count as an original Rebelle Society article, being this the first journal or publication where it is officially shared.
As such, the reposting rule when sharing on a second publication post-Rebelle, should be applied as listed above in the first section (Reposting Rebelle material on other websites) and Rebelle Society be credited as the original website of publication.
Book or Music Promotions.
We also try to accommodate musicians that want to promote their music on Rebelle Society. If you fall into that category and if you’re open to sharing the story behind your music, email us at email@example.com.
We’ll get back to you with our rates and details of the agreement.
*The posting/reposting rules do not apply to original pictures, work of art or videos previously uploaded on platforms such as YouTube, Vimeo, etc., already registered under the author’s artistic property.
