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.
