Staff FAQ

Anyone with an appreciation and a critical eye for creative work is welcome! 

Q: I'm a [insert any major here] major. What can I contribute to staff?

Q: What does a general staff member on submissions team do?
In the fall semester, staff meets once every two weeks to review submissions. Before each meeting, staff members will review submissions on the Google Drive and come prepared to discuss and evaluate each piece. In meetings, staff members sit around a table, eat snacks, read/view submissions, and discuss each piece and its potential contribution to The Streetcar. 

Q: I wasn't offered a position on staff. Can I still be involved?
Yes! You can submit your own work to The Streetcar. You can also follow us on our social media, come to our events, and stay aware of artistic opportunities on campus. By engaging with The Streetcar in any way, by reading the magazine or simply talking about art with your friends, you're creating a community that welcomes and enjoys artistic expression!
