A Self-Love Letter…what is that?

A Self-Love Letter…what is that?

Our February themed call for submission is self-love letters, but what exactly does that mean? In the simplest terms, a self-love letter is a heartfelt tribute to the aspects of yourself that you like. Do you have a very specific coffee routine every morning, encompassing a mess of slow roasted beans and a twenty-minute drip process, after which you warm your hands on a mellowly steaming mug of excitement for the day? Or do you recite the lyrics to Bohemian Rhapsody in your sleep, which unnerves your roommate, but reminds you of your September in Colorado where you discovered the pulsations of music which center your day, your heart, your head and propel you forward?

We love Lucille Clifton’s “homage to my hips“, which describes the freedom she finds in her own body, the revelry in knowing her capabilities and worth.

So, what is the quality that you love about yourself? We want to hear it! This themed submission closes on February 28, so submit your poems, prose, art, or other media of self-love. General submissions are also open.
