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.
