And don't forget, elementia, is currently accepting submissions of writing and art for issue xvi through February 1, 2019 on the theme of Breaking Free:

Standing up for what you believe in is a big part of growing up and learning how to break out of your shell. Whether it’s something as little as changing the way you dress or as big as taking charge of your own future, we are wondering what makes you bold—how do you defy the status quo?
But action doesn't stop at the self. How do you free others? How do you disrupt the systems of the world? Share your ideas of defiance and change. Use experience from social reformers of the past, current events, or your own brushes with breaking from society’s norms. We want to know—how do you break free?
