The Heart & Mind Zine is curated by a group of volunteer judges who are organized by our editor-in-chief. Though the judges may change from time to time, we ensure they are artists with some expertise in the category which they are judging. Writer's review written submissions, musicians review instrumental submissions, etc. If you would like to become a judge for Heart & Mind Zine please email us at HeartMindZine@gmail.com and we can send you an application.
Free Space for your Great works
Heart & Mind Zine was begun by Tomovi Keoni (editor-in-chief), with the help of a small group of volunteers, to serve one purpose: help budding artists by giving them a platform for their work. It is our goal to become a staple of the artistic community online; as part of that goal, every work we publish will have a space for comments and buttons for sharing the work on social sites. Through this method, artists may engage with those who comment on their work, and have an easy way to share it with friends and family. You will never have to create an account with us to do these things, making the process of commenting on, or sharing, an artist's work simple and seamless. Artists will always retain all rights to their artwork and may ask Heart & Mind Zine to remove them for any reason, at any time.
For the love of the Arts
All of us at Heart & Mind Zine take precious time out of our lives to earnestly review the submissions we receive. We do it because we love art, in all its forms, and want to find the very best to share with the world. Discovering new artists, and methods for expressing ideas and passions, is truly exciting to us. Whether you've been published dozens of times, or never shared your art with anyone before, we welcome you to share with us. For more on our philosophy read this interview with our Editor-in-Chief.
