Welcome to The Incandescent Review
The Incandescent Gallery
We are an entirely non-profit, teen-run literary magazine, and our team hails from across the globe: from New Delhi to Shanghai, from Athens to San Francisco. Our purpose is to create a platform for teens and young adults to express their opinions and emotional responses to world issues in the form of the arts in various mediums. We also hope to be part of the solution to world problems such as global warming and COVID-19 through various arts-based fundraising projects.
We hope that, by illuminating youth voices, we will empower young artists, writers, and musicians everywhere and fuel this generation's flame-like passion to be part of the solution.
When a fire is kindled, it only knows how to grow.
This is the essence of The Incandescent Review.

Read the Magazine
In this issue of The Incandescent Review, we invited youth—once again—to explore and embrace their voices on the issues impacting their psyches, from global to introspective.
Our purpose as a magazine, as always, is to amplify these voices on our platform and fuel important conversations. Conversation is the instigator of change, and through these small changes, we hope to contribute to a better future founded on empathy, respect, and thoughtfulness.
