We are Ignite. We believe in the power of creativity—that art in all its forms can unite people. Our creative work can set the world on fire, as St. Ignatius asks us to do.

A student-run, student-led, and student-produced literary and visual arts publication that highlights the talents of the Seattle Prep community, Ignite is a vital creative voice of Seattle Preparatory School.

Ignite is committed to furthering the mission of Seattle Prep through fostering the development of the whole person. We do this by embracing the literary and visual arts as media through which we can deeply and authentically encounter God in all things—a central ideal of the Ignatian spiritual tradition.

The staff of Ignite meets each Window period to read, view, critique and revise the submitted pieces with moderator Jen Dotsey.

Moderator Jen Dotsey, of the Departments of English, Theology, and Community Ministry, holds a Master of Fine Arts degree in Creative Writing from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington and is at work on her first novel, a work of historical fiction.

Students interested in joining the Ignite Window class should contact Ms. Dotsey at jdotsey@seaprep.org.
