  • How can I submit work to Lumière?
    To submit work to Lumière, follow these steps: 1. Navigate to the Submit Your Work! page located at the top of the site. 2. Click the blue Upload Here button. 3. Fill out the Lumière Magazine Submission Google Form. 4. Submit the form.
  • When is the deadline for submissions?
    We have extended the deadline for submissions until April 12th.
  • Who can submit work to Lumière?
    Anyone, and that includes you! It's our practice to ensure that at least 70% of the work in the magazine has been created by students, but we also find it important to publish work from faculty, staff, members of the community, and anyone else who hears our call.
  • Can I publish my work anonymously?
    Yes! When filling out the submission form you can choose to have your piece published anonymously or with a pseudonym.
  • What types of work are accepted? 

    You can submit your poetry, short fiction, prose, short plays, lyrics, artwork, photographs, and other creative work.
  • Is AI work accepted?
    Per our submission guidelines, all submissions must be the creation or creations of the applicant, as such this does not include AI created works.
  • Is fan art accepted?

    Our goal is to accept works that are unique and unfamiliar to the audience. While fan art is considered a type of art, it is not exclusive to the artist and is therefore not accepted. Also, without the appropriate licenses and permissions, fan art may be considered an infringement of the copyholder’s right to publish that work.
  • How are submissions reviewed?
    First, our submissions manager removes all identifying information from the submission. The editorial team looks for work that is original in subject and style, showing the world something new, or letting us see something familiar in a new light. We highly value attention to craft, no matter what the medium.
  • Does the magazine staff edit submissions? 

    We reserve the right to crop and enhance art submissions, to copyedit, and to make minor changes to maintain consistency across the magazine, but we highly value the integrity of the work we receive and will not make substantive changes. We promise not to change your ending.
