One could travel down a million different paths when considering women in art, and I’m inviting you to pick one of these paths and write your heart out! I am excited to be joining up with Ashley from Small  Strokes as the editor of this month’s Feminist Odyssey Blog Carnival and I am calling on you to further shake the trees where women are missing, problematic, celebrated, or empowered making art. This means I will post a list of all of your blog posts with titles and blurbs on March 27, 2013.
The full guidelines for writers can be found here.
Most important bit of information is that your original posts are due on March 15, 2013. 
Submitting is easy, and can be done here. (The link will take you to and prompt you to submit)
If you don’t have a blog and still want to write, contact me and I will happily find you a feminist friendly blog to host your post. Contact me at
I have plans to share some poetry or thoughts inspired by the Femme Qui Bercent exhibit (featuring work on the figure by 10 artists who are women opening March 1) at Noyes Art Gallery in Lincoln – what about you?
