Editorial Focus

WomenArts Quarterly Journal (WAQ), an initiative of Women in the Arts, aspires to nurture, provide support, and challenge women-identified artists of all cultures, ethnicities, backgrounds, and abilities in their role in the arts and seeks to heighten the awareness and understanding of the achievements of women creators, by providing audiences with historical and contemporary examples of the work of women writers, composers, and artists.

Tips From the Editor

WAQ provides readers with contemporary examples of the work of women-identified creators, and therefore, seeks submissions by women-identified creators only. We do not wish to publish work that exclusively addresses the experience or concept of womanhood. Furthermore, it is not necessary for the subject matter of work submitted to pertain to womanhood at all. The best way to find out what we do like is to pick up a copy of WAQ here: www.vivacepress.com/waq
