✶ Spark Magazine ✶

Editor-in-Chief                           May 2020 - May 2021

Maya finds it nearly impossible to type out everything they have learned, created, and accomplished as EIC onto this website.

As EIC, Maya oversaw a staff of 200+ creatives and every department, and function, of Spark. Equal to their role as management and HR of the magazine, their role was imperative to the copy-editing and creative processes that create the bi-annual print magazine. 

Issue No. 16: Fantasia


Due to COVID-19, the Spark team believed they wouldn’t be able to print this season’s issue; Issue No. 15: Amuse-Bouche. They cut their staff dues in half to make them more affordable for anyone who’s lost finances due to the pandemic, making the org. unable to provide free copies to staff as they usually did. Instead, they created an online magazine/microsite. 

After weeks of discussion later into the season, Spark realized how much they appreciate the art of printing and having a physical copy of their work in hand. The leadership team decided to scour their sources to find an affordable, yet high-quality way to easily print. Following weeks of research, the team mined printing gold and sold out on orders within two days. Spark walked away from this season excitedly with Issue No. 15 print magazines and an irreproachable microsite that brought the issue to life.
