Contributor guidelines

CreativeMindClass Magazine is a free online magazine covering the creative process, moving artists' stories, and best practices coming straight from creators and artists. We feature illustrations, animations, paintings, installations, and music projects, remaining open to featuring other art categories.

CreativeMindClass features are more than average magazine articles – as a teaching platform magazine, they're always full of tips and advice based on creators' experiences. Our interviews spotlight the creators, keeping their individual voices, and we encourage artists to share their inner world with readers. We do our best to present the words of artists, keeping their 'personality' – beautiful, honest, introspective, natural, unedited, pure, and authentic.

Illustrations, animations, photographs, and sounds are also unedited, providing unprecedented insights into the BTS of the creative process. One of our magazine's greatest strengths is its focus on presenting not only the words of artists but also the final art pieces in a gallery-like way. Our design supports the presentation of various file formats, so no matter if you are an illustrator, gif artist, 3d animator, videomaker, or sound specialist, your work will be displayed as it was intended.

To support all featured creators, we mention their websites and social media for people to find them easily.

Both finished answers to the interview questions (see below) and pitches are welcome from all contributors.

When featured, please make sure you get familiar with the Publication Best Practices described below.
