The theme for the 2015 journal was “The courage of our convictions”, guest writer is Beth Macy, award-winning author, New York Times bestselling author of “Factory Man” and painter Bill White as our guest artist. The journal expanded and included short stories as well as poetry, photography and art. Artemis 2015 book launch featured a reading by Beth Macy.
The theme for the rebirth of the journal, 2014 Artemis, was “Our connection to nature”, and featured our guest writer, Nikki Giovanni and guest artist, photographer Sam Krisch. We launched with much fanfare from our community of writers and artists who had missed the journal and welcomed us back with many submissions.
