About

Love Me, Love My Belly (LMLMB) is a print zine dedicated to the acceptance of self and imperfection as beauty. It’s about the space between us, our differences, our scars, our wobbly bits, and our power as it relates to the bodies we live in. LMLMB considers a variety of works ranging from photographs or artworks to poetry and essay in which size or body image is a central theme. We’re looking for work that ultimately comes to a positive message or close, work that revolves around self acceptance, or work that seeks to accept perceived-imperfection as beautiful.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Just remember…

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
