The writer comes to the places where traces of making can actually be seen and smelled and touched expecting to be inspired and enabled, possibly even cured. Janet Malcolm
I’m convinced that anyone willing to call themselves a writer is fascinated, at times addicted, to the terror and beauty in this life. The satisfying remains of an incredible breakfast. The unsaid, yet final words. The strangers. To capture this interest involves an individual process. Some of us write alone. Some of us make lists. Some of us face the angel together, by beginning daily with 250 word practices.
Welcome to LUMINA Vol. XVI: Borders and Boundaries!
LUMINA’s mission has always been to create a journal where the experimental and traditional are celebrated together, transforming into something innovative and exciting. As the new Executive Board, we are continuing this work, while also looking to engage diverse writers across disciplines, identities, geography, and form. We will continue to bring you the elements that make us stand out: writer interviews, translations, international graffiti art, multimedia pieces, and the nonfiction contest.
