Magazine Submissions - Protest's Communication Issue

We use words to communicate but it's not the only way to convey a message. Everybody talks! Seriously, our bodies tell stories. We speak through appearances, physical movements, and sign languages. Conversations happen within us on a cellular level- an inevitable component of survival. We speak through prayer, music, and art, too. Even animals and beings found in nature "talk" to one another.

Issue #2 is all about communication and education, here we can dissect anything from our personal love languages to the complexity of African American Vernacular, how personal style is translated to the rest of the world or even prayer as a form of conversation

Creative Jenny Oh

Our beloved Jenny Oh created the cover and magazine art for the Mercy Issue. Jenny is an artist who centers her work on the health, movement, and beauty of the woman’s body. As someone who lives with endometriosis, Jenny has become an advocate for other people who live with these ailments, too.

a thank you and an update

Protest Magazine is grateful, and thankful, and still breathing.

We. Didn’t. Make. Our. Fundraiser. Goal. But Protest is still winning. The loss was a lesson and we’ll chalk it up to growing pains. We are growing. Recently, we were approved as a company to post calls for artists and writers in the career database of colleges in the country. Spots like The New School, Pratt, and Dillard are just a few of plenty. Calls for contributors went up on independent artist resource sites, too. You can find us on the National Association of Latino Arts & Culture, Lambda Literary, and the Chicago Artists Resource sites for up and coming artists and writers.

Women are responding. Women are looking to protest oppressive social norms and provide commentary on society through creative work. Women are sending in their illustrations, poetry, essays and words of wisdom and we intend to work with them.
