While the beating heart of Cicada is our creative community, we want you to know who looks over the editorial process, from selecting our themes to curating each publication.
We also want to let you know that we’re always looking for Creative Team Members to join our staff! Every publication cycle, we accept applications from undergraduate students who are interested in participating in our month-long review process. Here, you will join our team as we review our submissions; you’ll learn valuable skills about online publishing and the review process and be credited in our publication.
I’m always a sucker for art pieces that explore the mundane. Those boring, repetitive actions we repeat each day, the public spaces that we usually walk through and dismiss, they all have potential to be windows through which we can glimpse the deeply encoded habits of human nature.
I love art, music or writing that makes me feel uncomfortable. Things that confront the abject and make us come face to face with what we refuse to acknowledge on the day to day, or shine a new light on familiar subjects. I think the point of creative work is to make people question.
