Lumen is a project for (and by!) cis women, trans women, and nonbinary people. We welcome you to submit short pieces for the blog section of Lumen. These pieces could be about current cultural events, political opinions, a weird first date, some thoughts on a book you're reading, or a list of your recent Google searches. 

Length suggestion: 500 words or so might be the sweet spot, but don't hesitate to go a bit longer or shorter if necessary. Say what you need to say. 

We accept audio and visual submissions as well, and we take simultaneous submissions—but please notify us if your work has been accepted elsewhere before you hear from us. Please contact us at at with any questions.
