Attention women artists and photographers.
Do you have artwork or photography you would like to see in print?
share it with the rest of the world.?
April 2005 is the launch date for "Penwomanship," a magazine for the creative
"Penwomanship is designed specifically as a forum for creative women," says
Penny White, publisher of the new monthly periodical. >=While there are
magazines which publish artwork and photography, none specifically highlight
women's visual arts.
The first edition of the magazine is slated to be 104 pages of women's
creative writing, artwork and photography.
"We would like to include at least a dozen or so pieces each of art and
photography in every issue," says White. "As we grow, we will be able to
"We will also include profiles each month of a featured artist and a featured
photographer whose work appears in the magazine," adds White.
White stipulates there is no erotica included in the publication and nude
photographs are also not acceptable. Nude art drawings will be considered on
their individual merit.
Although seeking original submissions for the magazine, White likes to think
of it as a type of "Reader's Digest" for women's creativity.
"We plan to offer a wide diversity of reading material and appealing visual
imagery for women readers," says White.
Currently the website, www.penwomanship.com, has received over 70,000 plus
hits since its launch on Oct. 1, 2004. That number is expected to increase
exponentially once the printed magazine reaches newsstands in April.
But what's with the name of the magazine?
White smiles. "There is an interesting story behind that. And that story can
be found on the website under 'Mystery Behind the Name'."
Artwork and photography submissions MUST be sent as jpg attachments to either
of the following two e-mail addresses:
as these two addresses handle jpg attachments best.
Submissions may also be snail-mailed to
P.O. Box 235,
For more details, please carefully read the submissions
guidelines on the website. Photographs of three dimensional artwork are
acceptable. Artists and photographers are also encouraged to include a 50-word
bio to accompany their work.
All submissions must be from women only.
Pay is currently five contributors' copies until the magazine is able to pay
contributing artists and photographers. White hopes to accomplish this within
the next two years.
Subscriptions are also available via the website. A printable subscription
form is available on the website. In addition to introductory rates, all
subscribers prior to March 1 will have the opportunity to win one of three
handmade queen-sized quilts in a drawing to be held in May.
