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.
By expanding our range of cultural and artistic events, Artemis collaborated with the Light Bringer Project in Los Angeles and Pasadena. “Artemis-women hold up half the sky” competition promoted a Sci-Fi feminist short story. This award recognizes a science fiction story that embraces feminist themes and has a strong female protagonist. Top entries will exemplify excellence in feminist storytelling, while capturing the complexities of their characters.
The winner received dual publication in Artemis Journal and on the Hollywood NOW website in addition to $100.00 USD cash from Hollywood NOW. The winner’s story was read on stage by a celebrity guest at LitFest Pasadena on May 19th and the winner Mindy Quigley was officially recognized at the event for her story “Equality Day.” Additional prizes include a print copy of the Artemis Journal with the winning story featured, special recognition in media releases, and more.
Jeri Rogers and Mindy Quigley traveled to California to participate in the Pasadena Lit Fest awards ceremony.
