Lumen is a project for (and by!) cis women, trans women, and nonbinary people. We are interested in personal essays, opinion pieces, memoirs, poetry, fiction, and interviews that examine how we move through the world, both as complex individuals and as members of larger communities. The conversations we are interested in are those that shed light on our stories—on our struggles, our triumphs, and all the in-betweens.
We aim to honor each other’s unique experiences and aesthetics by publishing work that recognizes the full range of important artistic and intellectual production by women. We acknowledge that we are all individuals with intersecting facets of identity, and that these identities shape our interactions with each other and with the world at large.
The deadline for submission to Issue 04 of Lumen Magazine is Friday, September 9, 2016. Please see our submission guidelines for more information on how to submit to Lumen Magazine.
