Heft.live, founded on Election Day 2016 by Editor-in-Chief Michael D. Selvia, is devoted to stories involving news, politics, arts, and culture that are infrequently told by mainstream media. Our aim is to promote critical thinking in these divisive times, providing stories from an overall progressive viewpoint.

Our contributors are mostly freelance and we do not instruct them on what to write. The views expressed in posts are of its authors’ and do not always represent the website.

Heft’s team is comprised of writers and editors from different backgrounds. Some of us are bloggers, and others have worked for publications such as The Inquisitor.
