Looking forward to Launching Artemis 2019

Artemis will explore the power of movement, and how immersing our eyes in new experiences can lead to a happier, healthier and more fulfilled existence.  By collaborating with Southwest Virginia Ballet, we will celebrate the launch of this year’s journal by presenting an evening of joy through interpretive dance and poetry.

Submission Deadline

 Artemis 2019 Submissions

CLOSED

With the Holidays upon us, we’re reflective of how grateful we are for our community of contributors & readers! Each year, our editing team sifts through content from the New River Valley & beyond to bring Artemis to life. With only one week until 2019 submissions close, we find ourselves looking for more local content and first-time contributors to connect us to our roots of fostering Appalachian art and literary excellence!

Please spread the word to your friends and family, and to the writers/poets/artists in your life who have always wanted to be published! Many of our first time contributors go on to be published in other works and a few have even joined our editor’s circle. As we look ahead to 2019, we are focused on cultivating our community and invite you to join the conversation. Cheers to 2018, friends; we wish you a very happy holiday season!

ARTEMIS Donates 10% of journal profits to the Women’s Resource Center

 

The orgin of Artemis Journal is rooted in social activism, starting in 1977 as a writing workshop for  abused women of the Women’s Resource Center in Roanoke, Virginia. Ten percent of this year’s publication is shared with the Women’s Resource Center in Radford, Virginia, a safe haven for abused women and children.

In solidarity with the women and children who face violence, fear, homelessness and unemployment, we hope that one day there will not be a need for these shelters.
