What does the Prism staff do?
Prism is made up of three parts: graphic designers, art editors, and literature editors.
Graphic Designers: Graphic designers create the look and feel of Prism magazine. They are responsible for layout, advertising, and promotion. Graphic designers must be able to work collaboratively.
Art Editors: Art editors are primarily responsible for reviewing and critiquing art submissions. Submission review closely resembles an art critique. As a group, art editors determine what pieces are selected for the publication. Art editors are also responsible for distribution and advertising.
Literature Editors: Literature editors are primarily responsible for reviewing and critiquing literature submissions. Submission reviews closely resemble a writing workshop. As a group, literature editors determine what pieces are selected for the publication. Literature editors are also responsible for distribution and advertising.
What positions are available?
There are two paid positions for graphic design. These are year-long positions. Applications are accepted in Spring and Summer terms (check deadlines).
Volunteer applications for art and literary editors are accepted year round. Art and literature editors can receive Art or English Internship credit, or NMC 409 Practicum credit.
You must first be hired by the Prism editor-in-chief before enrolling for credit. If not, you will fail those credits.
Am I eligible for Prism staff?
All OSU students are eligible to be a part of art and literature staffs. While experience with art and/or literature critiques are a plus, Prism encourages all students interested in being a part of the magazine to join the art and literature boards.
For the graphic design positions, there is a preference for juniors and seniors in the Graphic Design program. Must be fluent in Adobe InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop. Web experience is a plus.
To be eligible for technical editor, applicants must be enrolled in 6 credits each term, maintain a 2.0 GPA, and be making progress to their degree.
How do I become a part of Prism?
For art or literature staff, you must fill out a staff application and deliver it to 118 MU East/Snell Hall or email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If your application progresses, you will undergo an interview.
