LUMINA, the literary magazine of the graduate writing program of Sarah Lawrence College, was originally conceived in the fall semester of 2000 by a group of three poetry and fiction students. It was the first graduate magazine to be produced on the campus since 1991. After consulting with those who had worked on Sarah Lawrence’s previous literary magazines, and a year of working to secure the necessary funding, the magazine was officially launched as LUMINA in December of 2001. The students’ efforts are supported by faculty advisors and by the writing program’s administrative staff, all of whom assist in making the production of LUMINA possible.
This year, LUMINA has made great leaps into the future, adding a permanent Blog Editor position, and introducing their first ever multimedia issue, Lux.
LUMINA strives to remain loyal to the traditions provided by literary history, all the while taking significant steps to embrace the future, technology, and the online literary world.
