Minerva Rising Literary Journal
Minerva Rising is a tri-annual literary journal (Fall, Winter and Spring) that publishes thought-provoking fiction, nonfiction, memoir, essays, poetry, and photography and art by emerging and established women writers and artists. Minerva Rising fosters a community for women to share and showcase their writing and art, which includes “The Keeping Room” blog featuring contributors’ thoughts on life and art. Minerva Rising also supports women’s independence by donating to charities like Women for Women International and offering an annual Owl of Minerva grant award during Women’s History Month to provide financial support to one woman writer or artist. By subscribing to Minerva Rising, you’re helping to support a creative community of women writers and artists – when women come together, we flourish. Help support the creativity that’s inherent in every woman.
