Jamie Heller-Poetry is my caffeine. I am a mother, wife, and teacher who gets up before the house starts to stir to write.

A Pushcart Prize nominee in 2014 (Little Balkans Review) and Best of the Net nominee for 2016 (805 Lit + Art), I also had pieces selected for honorable mention awards in the Whispering Prairie Press Writing Contest 2012, and the Kansas Voices Contest 2017 and 2011.

I have additional poems published or accepted at Prairie Schooner, Tule Review, Noctua Review, Whistling Shade, The Main Street Rag,Flint Hills Review, I-70 review, Blueline, 805 Lit + Art Journal, and others.

Creative Co/Lab is an award-winning multi-disciplinary project directed by SM East art teacher, Adam Finkelston. Mr. Finkelston and his students work with Healthy Rivers Partnership, local artists, designers, scientists, engineers, civic leaders, carpenters, and others to create a public exhibition. The project combines community service, science education, art education, and professional art practice to give students a unique experience. The program was awarded the first ArtsKC Education Award in 2016 and has been recognized by arts leaders in the city for its unique approach to arts education.

The Hand Magazine is dedicated to being the world’s premier forum for innovative and experimental uses of reproduction-based media. We are interested in how artists include their own hand in the art object while utilizing mechanical or reproduction-based techniques. We are interested in publishing any and all forms of photography and printmaking; whether the work is strictly a photograph or print, or whether the work incorporates these processes in a sculptural, multi-media or collage format.
The Hand is not profit-based. We just want to make enough money to make the next issue and offer artists better incentives to work with us on limited edition and special offer original artworks. Please consider contributing to our cause. While we are not a non-profit, we are, again, in it for the art! We appreciate your support! Long life to The Hand!
The next call for entries deadline is November 30th
for Issue #23, January 2019!
