The art of writing
According to Gustav Flaubert, “The art of writing is the art of discovering what you believe.” If you appreciate this art form, then you will appreciate meeting the team from Artemis Journal, who work tirelessly on discovering – and sharing – what they believe.

Members from their organization will be on hand to discuss their work, poet readings and provide you with a free notebook to create your own, plus raffles for free Artemis Journals and more!

From the performing and visual arts to science and technology, and from literature to our region’s rich history, come discover what makes Roanoke the cultural heart of Southwest Virginia.

And with activities like music-making, stilt walking, and more, there’s something for everyone to enjoy!
