Welcome to From the Lighthouse, the literary magazine of Durham University. From the Lighthouse is published in connection with and by the Durham University English Society, to ensure its continued survival for writers and readers in Durham and beyond.
We’re looking for all kinds of writing, be it poetry, fiction, drama, essay or translation. Anything that makes us think, or feel, or just go ooh. Anything that feels like it’s from the lighthouse – that is to say, something Beyond, something Bigger Than Us, something Everlasting which Virginia Woolf’s eponymous lighthouse signifies in her novel, To the Lighthouse.
