With spring arrives a new magazine, as fresh and positive as the season
April 4th 2017. Mark this date in your calendar. I can't impress on you enough how excited I am about the date. This is the date of the first ever Read My Mind magazine, the brainchild of Lily Amis, a talented artist, editor, producer and author who's had an extraordinary life. Last June, I interviewed Lily for Script Alchemy about her unusual background. Since then, she has designed a beautiful magazine, with the idea that it should be full of interesting articles to entertain and educate you, a collaboration of international bloggers to bring together the creative community and, most importantly, a magazine especially for the world's creative community. Read on...
Not only full of articles to enrich your life and be an oasis of positivity in a world of uncertainty and disillusionment, Read My Mind also contains tantalizing snippets and facts to inform you - perhaps you'll find an interesting tidbit to tell your friend or workmate over that most important cup of mid-morning coffee: elevenses.
Let me introduce the blogger team and the columns they write:

'Er,' I hear you say, 'I have no idea what you're talking about. I haven't sent anything in.'
'Yet,' I say, 'but you will, once you find out about our super competitions.'
And I'm right, right?
In this first issue, there are not only plenty of great reads for you to discover new authors, music, artists, movies, history and other exciting finger-on-the-pulse stuff, but also the chance for you to be one of those discoveries. The launch issue has eight, yes eight, competitions to inspire you to join in... before I go further, how about subscribing now, so you don't miss these fantastic opportunities?
So, like I say, one of the top ideals of Read My Mind is for this to not only be inspirational, and be a beacon of enjoyment in a sometimes dismal world, but to also give the creatives among you - authors, writers, songwriters and artists - the opportunity to light up other readers with your own inspiration. There is a contest here for everyone. There's a contest here for you. You only need subscribe (again, I emphasize, for free, and you can always unsubscribe if you don't enjoy it - we're that confident you will) and immerse yourself in another world for a while.
Artists: Look out for the Society 6 Artist Contest
Lyricists: Find the Song Lyric Contest
Authors and bloggers: Check out the Writing Contests
Readers: Competitions for you too
Did I say, most of the competitions are either free or nearly-free to enter? It might be unusual in this costly world of ours, but it's true. we don't want to make money off our friends. There are enough businesses and people out there ready to do that.) We want to make this our gift to you, the reader. The only condition on entry is that you are a subscriber. In case you missed that link...
And for winners of our exclusive contests (see Grant's post for details of some of the competitions), you will be featured in this glamorous magazine for everyone else to admire!
This is going to be BIG!
Check out the videos to get a feel for what it's all about! (Oh yeah, and if you haven't already, subscribe so you don't miss out :-) )
