LAMP Literary Magazine
Lamp is an annual literary journal which publishes poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, and art/photography from both current and former students of Liberty University. LAMP publishes thoughtful and engaging work that interacts with the fullness of life in their art, including the goodness of creation, the truth of fallenness, and the beauty of redemption.
