Journal Lumen Magazine

Lumen is a project for (and by!) cis women, trans 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.
