BOOK REVIEWS: Around 1,000 words on an academic text that deals with the theme of Food in some respect. This would preferably be interdisciplinary, but we will accept reviews of subject specific texts.

CREATIVE WRITING PIECES: Original poetry (up to 3 short or 1 long) or short stories of up to 4,000 words.

Please consider that HARTS & Minds is intended as a truly inter-disciplinary journal and therefore esoteric topics will need to be written with a general academic readership in mind.
