Non-Standard Lit: A Reading Series says
We invite you to the second fall 2016 reading for Non-Standard Lit at Gym Standard, this Sunday, November 6 at 5 pm, featuring Lumen Magazine and two fantastic readers: Julia Dixon Evans and Ruth Nolan.

Lumen Magazine

Lumen is a project for (and by!) women and nonbinary people. They are interested in poetry, fiction, personal essays, and interviews that examine how we move through the world, both as complex individuals and as members of larger communities. The conversations Lumen is interested in are those that shed light on our stories—on our struggles, our triumphs, and all the in-betweens.

Lumen aims to honor each other’s unique experiences and aesthetics by publishing work that recognizes the full range of important artistic and intellectual production by women and nonbinary folks. Lumen acknowledges that we are all individuals with intersecting facets of identity, and that these identities shape our interactions with each other and with the world at large.
