The Youth is on Fire Issue 4: A Moodboard

The theme for our upcoming issue of The Youth is on Fire is transience — how things always change, how everything is temporary. To the artists looking for inspiration, you’ll find here photographs and illustrations of different aesthetics that tackle the theme in various ways. On the literary side of things, we’ve rounded up a few short stories, poems, and essays that also revolve around the idea of transience. We hope something here resonates with you, as you’ll resonate with us
