About

Lumen is a project for (and by!) women and nonbinary people. We are interested in poetry, fiction, personal essays, 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 and nonbinary folks. 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.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Just remember…

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
