Publisher’s description: We are a community of leaders working together to generate healing and transformation by centering people first in health. We created Leaders Igniting Generational Healing and Transformation (LIGHT) as a go-to literary journal in public health. We are a journal, bringing back the true meaning of journal as a way to record personal experiences and stories through literary works. We are a logbook of illustrations and photographs, a digital and print commonplace that the public can use to creatively express themselves through narratives of their own health. We are a space focused on connections we make, the creativity we possess, and the community we form as we journey together to blaze roads and light up paths that keep people healthy. We are storytellers, writers, poets, editors, artists, and researchers committed to centering ‘people' in public health.

At LIGHT, we publish diverse authors and artists, both seasoned and emerging, new and unheard, particularly from populations underrepresented in public health. We also publish their fiction, nonfiction, poetry, art, letters, and other creative and literary works. We are a space where people can be challenged to use information to connect, to create, and to center ‘people’ in their stories of their own health, and we aim to advance work that pushes the margins of public health.
