This pop-up is free and open to the public as part of Roanoke Arts POP!, a winter celebration of arts and culture in Virginia’s Blue Ridge. No registration required – walk-ins welcome!
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 and provide you with a free notebook to create your own.
Artemis Journal is an award-winning journal representing more than 2,000 artists and writers, featuring notables such as US Poet Laureates Natasha Trethewey and Rita Dove and Virginia Poet Laureates Ron Smith, Luisa Igloria, and Carolyn Kreiter-Foronda.
For 45 years, Artemis Journal has paid tribute to its foundation 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.
