Welcome to the Incandescent Review

The Incandescent Review is an entirely non-profit, teen run literary magazine with a team hailing from across the globe: from San Diego to Toronto, from Chicago to Shanghai. Our purpose is to create a platform for 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.

By illuminating youth voices, we hope to empower young artists, writers, and musicians everywhere and fuel this generation's flame-like passion to be part of the solution.
