Volume XVIII coming soon

In here, you’ll find Fiction, Poetry and Nonfiction pieces that break the literary rules. Experimentation is not just a phase, but rather a revolution. This volume seeks to give space to our shared experience: voices from all identities that look at not just the heart, but the uncanny bowel, elbow and pinkie toe of humanity.

Firefly

Firefly is the podcast of Lumina Literary Journal, where we talk all things wordy and spin a story or two of our own. Each episode explores craft, perspectives and literary talent. Firefly podcast is hosted by editor-in-chief Chelsea Asher, and produced by Parks Kugle, Andrew Scheid, KT Herr, Katiy Heath and Rohitash Gupta. However, Firefly is not one voice; we seek to explore the writing community in all its variegated forms.

LA LENGUA

La Lengua is a branch of the literary journal Lumina which seeks to provide a platform for non-native english speakers and multilingual individuals to publish literary work. Our hope is to de-center the english language through a calling to folks who express their art in other languages. Maybe, you are a person who writes in your native language creatively, or you are a person who expresses your cultural identity exclusively through english, perhaps it's both in one poem. We hope that you will come to us with your art, as we seek to uplift underrepresented voices, and promote cultural pride beyond the canonical normative.
