Lucent Dreaming is managed and created by our editorial board and staff.

Jannat Ahmed

22883205_1535761423179853_1794900611_nJannat is an English Literature graduate and expert project-starter. She enjoys anything she is capable of envying and secretly compares LD to Lovegood’s The Quibbler with confessedly more fiction. She is editor-in-chief at Lucent Dreaming.



Jess Beynon

xmcU6utu_400x400Jess is a year old graduate who now has an understanding of the real world (Spoiler: it’s only fun 2% of the time). She likes good ghost stories, sitting on tables and creating; whether it be stories or sketches, her mind is always racing about something. When she’s not editing issues of the fabulous Lucent Dreaming, she works at a theatre where she hopes to be a producer some day in the not too distant future. Best advice she’s been given? Either ‘Write drunk, edit sober’ (Hemingway) or ‘Be less like Hamlet and more like Iago’ (Unspecified Literature Professor).

Joachim Buur

22219163_1571884242872442_1070838002_oJoachim works as an English teacher and is one of Lucent Dreaming’s founding editors. He’s an average Jo on the outside, but half-geek-half-snob on the inside. When Jannat manages to rouse him, he makes the magazine’s covers and does other little odd jobs. He’s currently chipping away at a science fiction story, but can’t decide whether to write it in English or Dutch.
His motto? Eyes, being photonic receptacles, can seee light everywhere.
