Artemis's mission has not changed from its conception. Borne out of the writing workshops held for the victims of domestic violence in Southwest Virginia, Artemis Journal has been an advocate for social justice since 1977. By publishing a yearly journal, featuring writers and artists from the Blue Ridge Mountains and beyond, Artemis highlights the voices of artists and writers who uphold the values of the Greek lunar goddess for which the journal was named–Artemis.
As the archetype of the mother goddess, Artemis was the protector of wild animals, the wilderness, young women, and childbirth, and was known as a carrier of light. We continue to pay tribute to those foundations today by advocating equal and fair treatment of all. Artemis strongly denounces all forms of discrimination. Whether it is a fight against sexism or racism, Artemis works to elevate the voices of all genders and backgrounds—and to provide a pathway for their art.
