Artemis Journal will launch its 25th issue at 6:30 PM on Friday, May 4, at the Taubman Museum of Art. This year’s theme, “Women Hold Up Half the Sky,” attracted poetry and prose to fill 200 pages, double the publication’s usual length. Mike Allen covered the issue release in the Roanoke Times. You can also read his piece at Artemisjournal.org.
Editor-in-Chief Jeri Rogers and Literary Editor Maurice Ferguson put together a high quality journal of which the region is rightfully proud. Join in the celebration Friday with local writers included in the issue and guest author Sharyn McCrumb. Tickets for the launch are $12 ($8 for Taubman members), and packages are available that include a copy of Artemis.
