We’re glad to hear you’re interested in submitting. Here’s what you need to know:

What is The Spark looking for?

Just about any kind of art or story you can think of. Over the years we’ve hosted poems, fiction, investigative journalism, live monologues, essays, videos, songs, dances, paintings and everything in between. Send a draft or even just an idea to, and we’ll work with you to find a home for it across our web and live platforms.

Is my submission guaranteed a place in The Spark & RJF?

The Spark’s editorial team will give each submission thorough consideration. Submissions will receive feedback or suggestions for other appropriate venues if they aren’t a proper fit when they’re submitted.

Can I still get involved if I don’t want to submit my own work?

Absolutely. Drop us an email at if you’re interested in any of the behind-the-scenes work that goes into running our website and live events.

So I guess that’s it.

Yup. Now go back and enjoy all the killer student creativity zapping around.
