General Submissions
LUMINA requires a $3.00 service fee for General Submissions. We hope that you will see this fee as comparable to the envelope, stamp, SASE and trip to the post office that were all required for submissions not too long ago.

In an effort to offset this fee, we will send you a back issue if you choose the $5.00 payment option, and the current issue if you choose the $10.00 payment option. Thanks to a submittable update, all payment options can be seen under the General Submissions category.

Thank you for trusting your work with LUMINA.
