"Call for Artists: Seeking Art, Photography Submissions"
2005-01-24 until 0000-00-00
Penwomanship
Pine Lake, GA, USA United States of America

Attention women artists and photographers. Do you have artwork or photography you would like to see in print?  Ready to share it with the rest of the world.? April 2005 is the launch date for "Penwomanship," a magazine for the creative woman. "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 include more.

"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:
wordweaver43@yahoo.com or
penspen@yahoo.com
as these two addresses handle jpg attachments best.

Submissions may also be snail-mailed to
Penwomanship,
P.O. Box 235,
Pine Lake, GA 30072-0235.

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.

For more information contact Ms. White at penny@penwomanship.com.
