Nightlight Volume 2 Issue 3 Submission Period OPEN

Hello! There are two items of business: first, the next issue’s theme.

Volume 2 Issue 3: Hello My Name Is (May 10 - June 30)

For this issue, the relationship between identity and mental illness is the name of the game. How it shapes a person, the experiences unique to a character with a certain struggle, anecdotes about defining moments related to the idiosyncrasies of personality and illness–bring them all on! This is expected to be an introspective issue, and a sometimes raw issue, but once again, pieces that are derogatory in nature will be discarded. Nightlight is accepting artwork this year, as a reminder. Submission guidelines for art and writing are found on the corresponding page on our blog’s menu.

Now, business item the second: for the first time, Nightlight Magazine is taking on another staff member, making my occasional use of the “royal We” make much more sense than when it was just me. I will let him introduce himself in a subsequent post very soon, but for a quick glance, @thoughtsorlatenighttalksinjones is an old and dear friend of mine who has extensive experience with magazine editing as well as writing, and who has believed in this magazine from the beginning. I’m looking forward to working with him and expanding Nightlight.

The cover for this issue is open for the taking, so if you are interested, please send us a message.

Good luck!

Nightlight Volume 2 Issue 3 Submission Period EXTENSION

Hey, gang. I’m gonna go ahead and throw an extension into the ring, because we’re a week or so away and have no submissions. New deadline is July 10.

As a reminder, here’s the theme:

Feel free to share this on the Twitters and the Facebooks (we will be doing the same soon, having some scheduling conflicts while getting these pages set up). As always, boosting this post is so helpful and thank you in advance!

Hello, my name is regret. I’m pretty sure we have met.

Every single day of your life, I’m the whisper inside - won’t let you forget.


Hello, my name is defeat. I know you recognize me. 

Just when you think you can win, I’ll drag you right back down again, until you’ve lost all belief.


These are the voices…

These are the lies…

That I have believed in…

For the very last time.
