Some light for a dreary December day: the first issue of the literary magazine From the Lighthouse is now shining forth, and is available to read online. The magazine features stories, poetry, reflections, and drama from a range of new and upcoming writers.
From the Lighthouse is published by Durham University’s English Society, and accepts submissions from anyone, anywhere. The theme for Issue 2 will be ‘change’; deadline 26th February.
There is also a competition specifically for Durham University students, judged by poet Helen Mort, and Mslexia editor and published author Debbie Taylor. Poetry, short fiction and flash fiction are accepted on any theme until midnight Sunday 24th January 2016. There will be cash prizes for the winners, to be announced in March 2016.
