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
