About

The Artemis mission has not changed from its conception in 1977. In the basement of the Roanoke, Virginia YWCA, Jeri Rogers, as director of the Women’s Resource Center, started writing workshops for the enlightenment of abused women. That experience and those writings inspired the creation of this journal, providing a platform where women could publish their opinions about their contemporary lives. In 1979, men joined the staff with esteemed writer, Maurice Ferguson as Literary Editor. Maurice has mentored scores of area writers in his tireless support of written expression. Today, Artemis Journal provides an honored space for artists and writers to publish their contributions for the cultural enrichment of all, publishing many notable artists and writers, including Virginia Poet Laureates and a United States Poet Laureate. Artemis Journal is a charitable, non-profit organization made possible by generous contributions from supporters, the Roanoke Arts Commission, and The Taubman Museum of Art. Ten percent of Artemis profits are donated to Turning Point, a shelter for abused women and their children.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Just remember…

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
