Artemis is launching the 2019 journal featuring Sally Mann’s photograph on the cover. Please join in the celebration on June 7th at the beautiful Taubman Museum of Art featuring a dance performance “Poetry in Motion” by the Southwest Virginia Ballet Company.
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.
Artemis Journal is again collaborating with the Los Angeles based non-profit, The Light Bringer Project whose mission is to promote Science Fiction short stories. The judges are selecting the winner from over 90 submissions from around the world. The winner will be announced in April.
The winning story will be published in the Artemis Journal 2019 and receive a $100 award from the Hollywood National Organization of Women. Pasadena Litfest will host the awards ceremony with professional actors reading the winning stories, May 18th-19th.
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!

“Women Hold Up Half the Sky”
Entries accepted include poetry, art and science fiction short story
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.
