Join the Incandescent & Enter a Youth 

Movement of Art-Driven Change.

Interested in creative writing, journalism, art/design, video editing, spoken word, marketing, and more? Does speaking out about relevant social & global issues while actively making a difference by crafting wide-scale fundraising efforts using arts-related premises pique your interest?


Fill out our application! Upon acceptance, we will be in touch with you via email. It may take up to 4 weeks to reach a final decision.


  • To apply, you must be 24 years old or younger.

  • To prevent conflicts of interest, we are not accepting applications from staff of other internationally-staffed, exclusively student-run literary magazines. Publications that consider submissions limited to a region or school do not apply to this restriction; magazines like Polyphony Lit also do not apply, as their directors are college graduates.

  • Simultaneous applications are allowed; however, once accepted to the team, you must withdraw your application as soon as possible.
