Marks the 100th anniversary of the
19th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution
giving women the right to vote
Our challenge to artists and writers
What does freedom of expression mean to you?
In the year of 1920, American women were granted the right to express themselves by voting.
Today, non- disclosure agreements (NDA) for sexual abuse are still used to silence women. In looking forward to next year, Artemis Journal supports the movement for free expression in all areas of our lives.
Our theme is open-ended and not limited to gender or specific ideas regarding artistic expression. However, that being said, the editors hope your submissions are sensitive to our mission.
“This is precisely the time when artists go to work. There is no time for despair, no place for self-pity, no need for silence, no room for fear. We speak, we write, we do language. That is how civilizations heal.”
