Submit to LYR Issue #17

Love Your Rebellion is accepting art and writing submissions with the theme "Riot" for Issue #17 from Feb. 2nd – April 2nd, 2022.

A laugh riot is joyful. A riot of colors is exuberant. What if you could have a love riot? Or a riot of self-acceptance? Love Your Rebellion, Issue 17: Riot is an exercise in embracing the varied opulence of your bold, flourishing inner and outer worlds. From Feb. 1st to April 1st, LYR is accepting art and writing that explores riotous abundance, even in the scarcest of backdrops. Submissions by people from marginalized groups are encouraged. Read the guidelines and submit below.


Beginning in 2020, LYR will donate 500 copies of the LYR Zine annually to Abuse Counseling and Treatment for use with their clients. ACT provides services to victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking. LYR is proud to support their work by supplying therapeutic arts activities!
