Mosaic Minds is taking off and we are looking for submissions. If you are interested, here is the list of themes through October. Please consider writing a feature article, a poem or a story or contributing artwork or photography. Look back through your older stuff, maybe you have something that just needs a bit of polishing that will work for one of the upcoming themes! We also highlight blogs and links of the week so if you know of something that might be of interest, please let me know.

Deadline for each month's submission is the 15th of the month prior, so for the March issue we need things by February 15th, and so on.

March: Nostalgia
April: Winging It
May: Heroes and Role Models
June: What If?
July: Self-Acceptance
August: Kindred Spirits
September: Serenity
October: Fears and Phobias
mood: sleepy
music: the tv in the other room


Oh, man! I've been meaning to look for some poems and have been so incredibly bogged down in/at work. (Two of us is doing the work of three since our third has just had her baby.)

I may have to just not promise anything for a while, and if I do find something, it will be a pleasant surprise. Would that be okay? I just love what you're all doing with MM!!


No, that's not okay. Drop what you're doing and go find some poems! Who cares about WORK?!!


just kidding. When and if you submit something, you know we'll be happy to receive it!

I really want to submit photos. Marie suggested writing a piece on Borås but the thing is..I have hardly ANY photos of this town cuz its so damn ugly! (and Im no good at writing as Im sure you've noticed). What could I do instead?


I don't see why you can't submit photos. There must be SOME photos you could take of your "damn ugly" town. (sorry, but that made me laugh). We are supposed to have a photography section, and have highlighted photography in the first issue, and would like to expand that area. Otherwise, maybe your photos of NYC in winter would work for the Travel section. I think you should contact the photography editor (see the website for exact address) or carrieb to find out what the best thing to do is. :)

I've been reading a bunch of amazing books lately and wondered if you'd want a reivew for this coming issue? I'd love to pump some of them. The one in particular I'm thinking of was written in 91! Does that make it classic enough? ;-] Lemme know and I can drop it on you if you like.

I don't think the editors would turn it down, but I can't be 100% sure for the Nostalgia issue since I know they already have several music/book/movie reviews for it. However, if it would work for one of the upcoming themes after March, they would be THRILLED to get your submissions :)
