The Lumen is an annual new writing and arts journal on the mutual dialogue between medicine, the arts and the humanities based in the University of Edinburgh. We hope 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.
We are pleased to announce that we are now accepting submissions for the Summer 2016 issue of The Lumen. The theme for this issue will be 'Trauma'.
