The Illuminator is your UMASC newsletter, and we count on you to submit articles, stories, poems, photos, or even original works of art. Since the Illuminator is only eight pages long, submissions between 250 and 750 words work best. If possible, include original photos that illustrate your work and a photo of yourself.

If you have any questions about the newsletter, or would like to submit an item for publication, please contact the newsletter editor, Ann Sullivan, at office@umasc.org
