New writing and arts journal The Lumen is now accepting submissions for the Summer 2016 issue under the theme of ‘Trauma’.

The Lumen is an annual new writing and arts journal on the mutual dialogue between medicine, the arts and the humanities based at the University of Edinburgh. Hoping to foster creative and critical discourse on the personal experience of illness and healthcare, The Lumen will provide a space for the expression of the deeply personal narratives of the medical encounter, from patients and healthcare professionals alike, and the aspects of the human condition that it exposes.

Contributors are welcome to interpret the theme in any way they wish along the lines of any discipline. Submissions are welcome in short fiction no more than 3,000 words in length, non-fiction no longer than 3,000 words in length, poems no longer than 70 lines in length in any style, genre or form, short reviews of one work (between 500 and 750 words) or comparative reviews of two or more works (between 750 and 1,000 words) and visual art.

For further details, please refer to the full Call for Submissions page and any queries regarding submissions can be addressed to the editors. For full information on the journal and the many way to submit, see The Lumen website.

The deadline for submissions for the issue is Friday, 4 December, 2015.
