Introducing illuminate: A Free Digital Magazine for Writers. Read more at

When Holl & Lane Magazine first began, we never imagined the community that would develop because of it. Women from all around the world came to read the stories of our brave writers. And even more surprising, women from all around the world asked to write for us, sharing their innermost journeys, thoughts, and feelings.

Due to our passion for storytelling, we've long wanted to develop a community for writers. But we wanted to be mindful of the type of group we created. We wanted to provide value and substance. To help women be able to share their story, no matter who would read it. And with that, we created illuminate.

illuminate is a monthly writing program dedicated to shining a light on the creative within us all. With themes, prompts, inspiration, reviews, and publishing opportunities, we are focused on getting your words out and helping you do what you do best - WRITE.

We decided that one of the best ways to cheer on writers was to create a magazine that honors their love of writing. So, within the pages of illuminate’s first bi-annual FREE digital issue, you’ll find the writings of some of our members. This issue showcases the pieces that our members love best. And we think you're going to love them, too.
