Diane Leon-Ferdico, a Draper alumna and current adjunct associate professor of arts in NYU's School of Continuing and Professional Studies is the interim Arts Editor of Hercircle ezine, a magazine of women’s creative arts and activism. Ms. Leon-Ferdico would like to solicit article submissions from current Draper student-artists who who would like to write about their process as it relates to a particular social or political project. Hercircle is not just interested in creative arts such as sculpting or painting--an article about your academic research could also potentially qualify for inclusion in the journal.
The journal's call for submissions, as well as a recent sample article is below. Please send your questions and/or submissions to Diane Leon-Ferdico directly at DL4[at]nyu.edu.
Hercircle ezine is a magazine of women’s creative arts and activism.
We are looking for women who engage in their creative process in the visual arts, poetry and on topics that profile a social/political viewpoint.
What we want is an essay between 800-1500 words that capture your process in the studio, how and why you create or write what you do. Up to four images may be included or a copy of a poem. Video excerpts from the artist may also be considered.
Please look at the website to become familiar with what we cover: www.hercircleezine.com
