Are you interested in seeing your writing published on Yopp? You are in luck! Yopp is officially open to submissions for guest posts, once again. 

Yopp relies on a diversity of voices in order to support its mission of centering marginalized voices. While I write the majority of Yopp's articles, I cannot offer first hand experiences for all marginalizations. The wider variety of experiences that can be represented, the better Yopp is equipped to accomplish its goals

Articles on Yopp are engaging, informative, thoughtful, and in-depth. I’m looking for pieces that prioritize harm reduction...

Yopp is where you go when someone shouts, “Educate yourself!” 

Yopp is where you go when you’ve suffered deeply at the hands of society and need to feel heard. 

Yopp is where you go when your uncle makes a post on facebook completely misrepresenting what privilege is but this is the third time this week you’ve tried to explain privilege to someone and you are simply burnt out. 


Today I wanted to tell you the story of why I created the social justice blog Yopp, what Yopp’s goals are, and how you can get involved in making those goals a reality.

Educate


In the world of social justice, one of...

The writer of today’s guest post, Jamie Dedes, is a name you may have seen on this blog before, but not as a guest blogger. Jamie published an interview with me about activism and Yopp on her poetry and writing blog, and shortly after, she proposed a guest post about a world-wide social justice initiative that’s been brought about by thousands of poets all over the world. Fun fact about me, before I was a blogger I was a poet, so the idea of promoting a group that combines activism with poetry really made me smile. I hope you’ll go check out 100TPC and consider getting involved after you finis...

After my "Close the Camps" article went semi-viral I received a lot of messages and emails from people interested to talk to me, compliment my work, and get my input on their options for activism. It was a big shift from the level of activity around my blog that I'm used to! 

But perhaps one of the most exciting contacts I made from this process was writer and poet Jamie Dedes reaching out to me, asking me if she could interview me for her blog The Poet by Day, a website with focus on poetry, writers--especially new ones-- and the occasional sprinkle of activism. She also let me know that she...

Today's guest post is part two of Violet Carson's "Wealth with Virtue" series about the process of converting capitalism into business practices that fit their identity, life structure, and ethics. You can read the first post of the series here on Yopp and you can read further posts on their blog Lunisolarpunk Witch.

Want to have your writing published on this blog? Yopp! Is now accepting pitches and submissions for publication! 

You may have noticed that my publication rate has decreased somewhat in the last six months, which is due to a combination of physical and mental health issues. Writing has been disproportionately affected by these issues and it's clear I need to take a break from forcing myself to make that happen so that I can be happier and healthier later. 

In order to ensure that this blog doesn't go dark in the mean time, I'm seeking submissions for a range of non-fiction written content, wh...

CN: In depth descriptions of the experience of mental illnesses including PTSD, anxiety, and depression, generally emotionally heavy content, ableism, trauma.
 

I’m clutching a tissue in my hands, the words “I can’t I can’t I can’t” swirling around my head.


My best friend has her hand on my knee. She’s carefully offering me solutions to try to get me out of this trap. I say no to every single one. I know it looks like I don’t want to find a way out. I do. I can’t find it. I want permission to lose it, permission to stop searching for a way to function like a normal person. I don’t want to be he...
